An unparalleled sense of workmanship goes into each chair, which is built on-site at Vitra’s famous Weil am Rhein campus by skilled craftspeople who have perfected the art of making chairs that last a lifetime. This iteration of the chair is finished with a luxury fabric upholstery, that offers both comfort and style and features an aluminium base for long-lasting service.
The Aluminium series of chairs was first produced in the 1950s and remains a beloved part of the Eames roster of furniture. The authentic original from Vitra, the EA 105 features a non-swivel base and comes complete with a 30-year guarantee, ensuring that the chair will remain a constant companion for years to come.
American husband and wife design duo Charles and Ray Eames have had a profound influence on the visual character of American life, producing original work within the fields of architecture, furniture design, industrial design, manufacturing and the photographic arts.
The Eames’ first partnered with Vitra in 1957 to produce some of the most iconic pieces of furniture in the history of interior design. Today Vitra continues to reflect their philosophy on design and functionality, best understood through Charles’ own words: “Recognising the need is the primary condition for the design”.
