Product Description

Vitra Charles & Ray Eames EA219

The Aluminium Chair is one of the greatest furniture designs of the twentieth century. It was originally designed for a private residence in Columbus (Indiana, USA), which was built by the architects Eero Saarinen and Alexander Girard in the mid-1950s. For the construction of this chair, Charles and Ray Eames abandoned the principle of the seat shell, instead stretching a panel of fabric or leather between two aluminium side members to create a taut but elastic seat. The various versions of the chair oscillate between strict function, structure, human anatomy and machine-like rationality. The chair adapts to the body of the sitter and is exceedingly comfortable, even without elaborate upholstery.
