The design of the Vitra Soft Pad office chair by Charles & Ray Eames dates back to 1969. It is similar in construction and in shape to the structure of the aluminum chair. The stitched upholstery creates an interesting contrast to the slim aluminum frame. This makes the Soft Pad Chair softer and more luxurious, without losing any transparency or clarity.
Models EA 217 and 219
The models EA 217 and EA 219 are office chairs from the chair family Soft Pad Group by Charles and Ray Eames. Thanks to their representative appeal, they are particularly well-suited for management areas. The tilting mechanism can be adjusted to the user's weight and offers a high degree of comfort in conjunction with the soft padding.
The Soft Pad Chair EA 219 differs from the EA 217 with its higher backrest.
