Eames EA 117 chair by Charles & Ray Eames for Vitra

The Aluminium Chair is one of the greatest furniture designs of the 20th century, and stands out for its intelligent combination of materials. The covers are attached inside the aluminium profile sections and simply stretched over the frame, transforming them from mere coverings to a load-bearing part of the structure. It adapts to fit the body snugly and delivers great comfort, even without extensive upholstery.

Medium backrest with adjustable backward tilt and height-adjustable pneumatic spring mechanism. Five-star aluminium base with castors.

Base available in polished or chromed aluminium. Seat upholstered in Hopsak fabric, Leather with Plano fabric back panel or Leather premium with Plano fabric back panel.

Hard or soft castors for carpet or hard floors.

This chair, as well as all others in the Eames Aluminium Group, includes a 30-year guarantee.

58w x 56.5-65d x 38.5-50.5/83-95cmh
