Aluminium Chair 105 - 106

Product description

The chairs in the Aluminium Group are the most famous creations by Charles and Ray Eames. Designed in 1958 they rate amongst the great achievements in the design history of the 20th century. An important characteristic of the Aluminium Chair is the intelligent combination of materials. It has a clear, transparent form and its construction is clearly visible. Aluminium sections lend the chair both stability and lightness. The material is fixed into the side sections, yet fitted loosely so that it follows the line of the body and is comfortable without requiring extensive upholstery. This material is not a cover but an integral part of the design.

The chairs in the Soft Pad Group by Charles and Ray Eames are now available with new upholstery padding and with Premium Leather covers in a wide range of colours. Premium Leather is also newly offered as a cover material for the Aluminium Chairs. The new palette for Premium Leather comprises 22 shades in three colour groups: warm reddish-browns, cooler green and bluish tones, and contrasting shades with a focus on white-grey-black. The elegant contours of the Soft Pad chairs are highlighted by subtle contrast stitching, which lends them a handcrafted quality.
