Charles & Ray Eames, 1969
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1969, the Soft Pad Chair was a nearly identical version of the iconic Aluminium Chair, with added soft padding for a more comfortable experience. This makes the chair softer and plusher, without detracting from its clean lines and dignified silhouette.
The models comprising the Soft Pad Group are suitable for a large number of uses: in the office, in conference and reception areas, but also at home.
The Eames EA 222 Lounge Chair is available to purchase on its own or paired with the EA 223 Stool.
