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 Soft Pad Chair was designed in 1969. In terms of construction and design it is identical to the Aluminium Chair. The attached padded sections form an interesting contrast to the elegant aluminium frame. They make the Soft Pad Chair softer and plusher, without detracting from its transparency and clear lines.
The models comprising the Soft Pad Group are suitable for a large number of uses: in the office, in conference and reception areas, but also at home.
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.
