The chairs in the Aluminium Group from Vitra are the most famous creations by Charles & Ray Eames. Designed in 1958 they rate amongst the great achievements in the design history of the 20th century.

An important characteristic of the Aluminium Group Chair is the intelligent combination of materials. It has a clear, transparent form and its construction is clearly visible. Aluminium sections lend the chair both stability and lightness. The material is fixed into the side sections, yet fitted loosely so that it follows the line of the body and is comfortable without requiring extensive upholstery. This material is not a cover but an integral part of the design.

The EA101 is a dining chair (without arms) from the group. Unlike the other chairs, the seat is narrower, the seating geometry more upright and the splayed legs of the base are slimmer. This makes the EA101 the ideal dining chair and, with the large range of fabrics available, when mixed and matched, gives huge impact to any dining table arrangement. As with all Aluminium Group Chairs the EA101 comes with either a polished aluminium or chromed base and a 30 year guarantee.
