Charles and ray Eames developed the designs for the Aluminium group of chairs in 1958, out of a desire to develop a line of furniture that could be used in a wide range of spaces. With a well thought out and practical design, the aluminium frame of the Vitra EA 108 Aluminium Chair is light-weight and available in two finishes, while a material cover, in premium Hopsak fabric, stretches between the aluminium frame, creating a superbly comfortable backrest which adapts to the body beautifully.
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”.
