Chair with 4-spoke base
Leather, Fabric, Die Cast Steel
The Aluminium Chair is one of the great furniture designs of the twentieth century. Charles and Ray Eames conceived and developed this chair in 1958 for the private residence of an art collector in Columbus, Indiana (USA). For its construction, the designer couple departed from the principle of the seat shell, instead stretching a panel of fabric or leather between two aluminium side members to create a taut but elastic seat. The chair adapts to the body of the sitter and is exceedingly comfortable, even without elaborate upholstery.
The Aluminium Group includes several different models for use in homes, offices and public areas. Vitra has produced the Aluminium Group chairs over a period of decades in the same superior quality. This experience allows us to offer a 30-year guarantee on all of the chair models in the Aluminium Group.
The Aluminium Chairs EA 101-104 by Charles and Ray Eames are ideal for active sitting in combination with tables, while the more expansively proportioned models EA 105-108 offer a slightly reclined seating position. The large selection of colours makes it possible to fi nd a matching fabric or just the right leather cover for the most diverse settings – whetherin conference rooms, meeting areas, restaurants or other public spaces.
