Eames Aluminium EA 118

    EA 118 with medium height backrest and table oriented sitting position.

    The Aluminium Chair is one of the great furniture designs of the twentieth century. Charles and Ray Eames conceived and developed this chair in 1958 for the private residence of an art collector in Columbus, Indiana.

    For its construction, the designer couple departed from 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 chair adapts to the body of the sitter and is exceedingly comfortable, even without elaborate upholstery.

    Vitra has produced Aluminium Group chairs in the same superior quality for decades. This experience allows them to offer a 30 year guarantee*.

    The Aluminium Group is ideal for use in homes, offices and public spaces.
