With Leather Premium F Vitra both introduce an environmentally friendly leather and support the development of leather tanning in terms of increased ecological sustainability. The purely vegetable tanning agent used to treat the leather arises naturally during the processing of olive leaves, a process undertaken with as few chemicals as possible. Leather Premium F thereby offers all the advantages of existing high-quality leathers, with the added advantages of being as independent as possible from environmentally harmful substances and processes and being particularly skin-friendly.

Can the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman be bought separately?

Yes, the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman (classic version) can be purchased separately. Please beware however that when purchased independently of one another slight differences in the wood grain and colour are, on account of the fact wood is a natural material, inevitable.

Why are the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman offered in two sizes?

The classic dimensions are those of the original 1956 design. That the average human today is larger than the average human was then, Vitra, in close co-operation with the Eames Office, increased the dimensions of the Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman. The proportions and the unique aesthetic of the object remains the same. Just bigger.

Is there a difference between the Vitra Eames Lounge Chair and that from Herman Miller?

Vitra hold the license and distribution rights for the works of Charles and Ray Eames in Europe and Asia. Herman Miller for all other regions. Although essentially identical, the base of the Vitra Eames Lounge Chair has slightly thinner arms than the version from Herman Miller.

How do I care for my Vitra Lounge Chair?

In order to maintain their soft feel and natural beauty, leather furniture such as the Vitra Lounge Chair should ideally be cleaned thoroughly every six months and regularly gently cared for. Only when the pores of the leather skin are free of dirt particles can the active ingredients in the leather be absorbed. In particular moisture and re-greasing nourish the natural material from the inside and optimally protect it from drying out and becoming contaminated. When choosing cleaning and care products, the type of leather is decisive, for example, there are different products for suede and smooth leather. It is best to clean your Vitra furniture regularly with a damp, lint-free cloth (no microfibre cloth) without exerting excessive pressure. If possible use distilled water to avoid limescale. After cleaning, leather needs moisturising care in order not to become brittle, and should not only be treated with pure fat or wax, but with a special leather care from specialist dealers. Ideally, the product should be tested in a small out of view area before large-scale use. Also pay attention to quality when caring for your design classic: inexpensive all-in-one products are generally unsuitable for the high-quality leather covers of the Eames Lounge Chair, while solvent-based care products can even be avoided at all costs. Since leather is sensitive to heat and sunlight and may dry or fade, it is advisable not to place the furniture directly near a heater or window or to use special leather care with a sun protection factor. The recommended indoor climate for furniture made of natural materials such as leather or wood is around 45-50 % relative humidity and a room temperature of 18-20 degrees Celsius.
