The Eames Aluminium Group Chair from Vitra is one of the greatest furniture designs of the 20th century. The Aluminium Group Chair stands out for its intelligent combination of materials. The covers are attached inside the aluminium profile sections and simply stretched over the frame, transforming them from mere coverings to a load-bearing part of the structure. It adapts to fit the body snugly and delivers great comfort, even without extensive upholstery.
The EA117 has a lower back and arms with an adjustable seat height and is mounted on a five star castor base. The frame and armrests are available in either chromed or polished aluminium and the upholstery is available in two grades of leather or Hopsak in a myriad of colours. The leather versions have an Plano fabric on the back of the chair in a complementary colour to the leather.
