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.
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 Eames Aluminium Chairs EA 115 and EA 116 are lounge chairs that offer an inviting and comfortable place to relax for extended periods, thanks to the high backrest. Since the seat height is not particularly low, it is easy for users rise from the sitting position, which makes these chairs ideally suited for lobbies and waiting areas. The Aluminium Chair EA 116 has a swivel seat, in contrast to the fixed base of EA 115. Both chairs are available in a wide selection of different colours with cover options in leather, fabric or mesh.
Many more upholstery options available, please see the product downloads or contact us for details.
