Eames Aluminium Chair EA 101 by Charles & Ray Eames for Vitra.

"Charles and Ray Eames designed many landmarks, and the Aluminium Group range ranks high in definitive seating furniture. Much copied and never surpassed, the enduring qualities in form, function and construction ensure its classic status."

The Eames Aluminium Group is presented as part of an edit of 20 enduring furniture designs selected by twentytwentyone as part of our twentieth anniversary celebrations. To find out more about our celebrations, visit the twentytwentyone is 20 page.

Ideal for using in combination with tables: in comparison to the other models in the Aluminium Group, the EA 101 has a narrower and higher seat, a more upright backrest and shorter armrests. Thanks to a wide selection of colours, it's easy to find the perfect chair for any setting – from home dining rooms and restaurants to office meeting areas.

Chair with medium-high backrest, table oriented sitting position. Side profiles, spreaders and four-star base in die-cast aluminium in chromed or polished finish.

Back-rest and seat upholstered in fabric and leather of the collection. Please see downloadable fabric and leather swatches for upholstery options. For leather options, the seat cover is leather and the reverse side is covered with Plano fabric.

Non-swivel without armrests.

Please refer to product downloads for colour specifications.
