The furniture whisperer
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
The shape and structure of the Soft Pad Chair is identical to that of the Aluminium Chair. However, stitched leather upholstery renders it more comfortable and makes for an interesting contrast with its slim aluminium profile.
Vitra has produced the Soft Pad programme for many decades to a consistently high quality. On the basis of this experience we are now granting a 30-year guarantee on all chairs of the Soft Pad Group.
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.
