Eames Aluminium Group Lounge chair by Charles and Ray Eames for Vitra, 1958

Considered as one of the greatest furniture designs of the twentieth century, the Aluminium Group was conceived in the mid-1950s as part of the furnishing scheme for a private house in Indiana.

Charles and Ray Eames approached the design from an engineering and ergonomic perspective. The seat was stretched taut between two aluminium side members, following the line of the sitters back, and without the need for elaborate upholstery. The principle was adopted throughout a range of chair frames providing different functions and needs to both the home and office.

The Aluminium Group has proved to be a highly versatile and enduring design and has been in continuous production since 1958.

The chairs offered are in dark brown leather, with chrome-plated aluminium frames, produced by Vitra

2 chairs are available. Price displayed is price per chair.
