The iconic yet understated EA 208 Soft Pad Chair Black Base was designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the Vitra Company.
The success story of Vitra began by chance when the founders, Willi and Erika Fehlbaum, met two furniture designers ? Charles and Ray Eames ? during a trip to the USA in 1953. The Fehlbaum couple instantly fell in love with the Eames' design pieces and decided to get a licence so they could produce them. Later in 1957, they brought the Eames' furniture to Europe for the first time.
The eA 208 Soft Pad Chair Black Base by Charles and Ray Eames makes a perfect option for prestigious conferences and meetings. The EA 208 with armrest belongs to the Soft Pad category of the Eames collection for office chairs. Made of aluminium and premium leather, it measures 84cm in height, 58cm in width and 59cm in depth. The seat itself is 43cm high and radiates a boundless style courtesy of soft seat cushion. The luxurious upholstery brings the ultimate soft seating comfort while felt grinders on the legs prevent common wear on hard floors. With two options for leather covers, the consumer can choose the most suitable interior version.
