The Vitra EA 117, and the other Aluminium Chairs designed by Charles and Ray Eames in the 1950s continued the pairs research with the design principle of the one-piece seat shell. In particular they created a chair in which a textile or leather cover is stretched between two aluminium side panels and thus the upholstery serves as the seat and the backrest. Whether in the home office or as an office swivel chair, the EA 117 with its ergonomically formed backrest and luxurious combination of leather and metal meets all the necessary requirements of a quality work environment.
