Charles & Ray Eames, 1969
The Soft Pad Chair was designed in 1969. EA 205 is the armless, non-swivel version of this chair. See EA 207 for the non-swivel version with arms, or EA 208 for the swivel version with arms. In terms of construction and design, the Softpad EA 205 Chair is identical to the Aluminium Chair. The attached padded sections form an interesting contrast to the elegant aluminium frame. They make the Soft Pad Chair softer and plusher, without detracting from its transparency and clear lines.
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.
