The Vitra EA 207/ EA 208 by Charles and Ray Eames are further evolved versions of the EA 205. The Vitra chairs all belong to the Eames Soft Pad collection, a collection of office and conference chairs which radiate a sovereign of style and which thanks to its soft seat cushion offers very high level of seating comfort. Unlike the Vitra EA 205 the EA 207 and EA 208 have armrests which contribute to a comfortable, seated position, in addition the EA 208 is rotatable.

Design Story

In terms of form and material the Vitra Soft Pad Chairs are strongly reminiscent of the Eames Aluminium Group, a collection Charles and Ray Eames had created 11 years previously. Developed in 1969 the Soft Pad Chairs proved and continue to prove themselves as effortlessly stylish in offices and work areas, and distinguish themselves from the Vitra Aluminium Chairs on account of their upholstery: a feature which gives them the impression of being a more muscular version of the aluminium family, muscular yet at the same time incredibly soft and inviting. The individual cushion units adapt ergonomically to the body of the occupant while the soft fabric, available in a wide range of colours, makes the Vitra lounge chair as visually appealing as it is physically pleasing. In all versions, the members of the Soft Pad Chair group are suitable for the office environment but also for waiting areas, lounge areas...and even at home. As with the Aluminium Chair the designer couple Charles and Ray Eames have with the Soft Pad Chairs once again demonstrated that their strength lies primarily in the creation of universal furniture objects which freely fit into any room and can be individually configured. The designs of Charles and Ray Eames are produced today by the Swiss furniture company Vitra, a company who look back on a long tradition of working with well-known designers and the development of furniture classics: a tradition built on company philosophy of always acting according to the values of sustainable production processes, and powerful designs which through their high quality enrich their environment.
