With Leather Premium F and Leather Natural 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.
Variants Optionally available with felt pads for hard floors or glides for carpets
Care To clean the wood surfaces a soft, damp cloth and a mild, neutral detergent is recommended.
The leather should be maintain and cleaned according to the included booklet.

Will a new Ottoman match an existing Eames Lounge Chair?

We offer the Vitra Eames Lounge Chair and Ottoman separately in our shop, but recommend a combined purchase (Lounge Chair & Ottoman). Wood is a natural product, when you buy both together you will get a Lounge Chair and Ottoman in matching wood colour and wood structure. If the two are purchased separately structure and colour can differ.

Are there differences between the Eames Lounge Chair by Herman Miller and that from Vitra?

Vitra has the distribution rights for Europe and the Middle East, Herman Miller for all other regions. The base of the Vitra Lounge Chair is slightly slimmer than the American version from Herman Miller.

How do I care for my Vitra Eames 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.

Design Story

With the design of their 1956 Lounge Chair Charles and Ray Eames created a ground breaking reinterpretation of the classic English Club Chair - sophisticated, stylish and contemporary. Inspired by an Eames Chair Vitra founder Willi Fehlbaum spotted by chance in New York, he subsequently secured the license for the production of the design classic. The Eames Ottoman forms the perfect complement to the Eames Lounge Chair: the small object consists of a fixed four foot base and a plywood shell with leather upholstery. With the Ottoman one has the ideal extension of the comfortable sitting experience afforded by the Eames Lounge Chair. The Vitra Lounge Chair and Ottoman are available in a range of wood types and leather colours and bring a sophisticated ambience to any room.
