The design of the Soft Pad Group dates from the year 1969. In terms of both construction and shape, the Soft Pad Chairs are similar to the design of the Aluminium Group, but their sewn-on cushions create a striking contrast to the slender aluminium profiles. The Soft Pad Chairs are softer and more voluptuous than the chairs in the Aluminium Group, but without losing the clean clarity of their common silhouette. The chairs adapt to the body of the sitter and provide extraordinary comfort.
Vitra has produced the Soft Pad 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 models in the Soft Pad Group.With their high backrest and soft upholstery made of viscoelastic foam, the Soft Pad Chairs EA 215 and EA 216 remain comfortable even for prolonged sitting periods. Since the seat height is not particularly low, it is easy for users to rise from the sitting position, which makes these chairs ideally suited for lobbies, lounges and waiting areas. The Soft Pad Chair EA 216 has a swivel seat, in contrast to the fixed base of EA 215. Both armchairs are available in two types of leather upholstery covers and in a wide range of colours.
