Featuring leather covers that are attached and stretched across the aluminium frame, the Vitra EA 124 Chair is a celebration of simple, effective design. Here, the upholstery elements are transformed from mere decoration to being an integral, load-bearing part of the structure, which adapts to fit the body snugly and delivers superb comfort.
The use of premium Leather F is a testament to Vitra’s approach to sustainability, with the luxurious upholstery produced and processed to the highest ecological standards, updating Charles and Ray Eames’s chair, which was first produced over 60 years ago, for the 21st century.
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”.
