Eames EA 208 chair by Charles & Ray Eames for Vitra.

The Aluminium Chair is one of the greatest furniture designs of the 20th century, standing 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.

With a lower backrest than its sister chair, the EA 208 offers comfort and practicality in its low profile shape and modest proportions.

Upholstered in Leather or Premium Leather, with Plano fabric back panel. See downloadable product information for colour combinations. 

Five-star swivel base in polished or chromed aluminium.

Choice of hard glides for carpet or soft glides for hard floor.

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

58w x 59d x 43/84cmh (classic height)
