The Soft Pad Chair EA217 from Vitra is from the Soft Pad range designed by Charles & Ray Eames. Like its sister EA 117 Chair the Soft Pad has the same structure but with stitched nappa leather pads of upholstery, rendering it more comfortable and making for an interesting contrast to the slim aluminium profile of the frame.

Featuring a base and frame in either mirrored 'chrome' or a slightly brushed 'polished aluminium', the back of the chair has a fabric covering which tones in with the leather front. It comes in two leather grades in a variety of colours.

The EA217 features armrests, a five star castor base, and has a gas height adjustable and reclining seat.
