Eames Soft Pad Chair - EA 217

  • The Eames Soft Pad Chair, created in 1969, is a classic variation of the Aluminium group. Following an identical design to the Aluminium Chair, the Soft Pad Chair provides an elegant, visible skeletal structure combining a sleek metal frame with soft padding to create an image of sophistication and luxury. The structure of the Soft Pad Chair follows the body line to ensure support, with the padding then adding a heightened sense of comfort. The enhanced comfort of the chair also adds to its versatility, making it ideal for use in the home, workplace, reception or dining area.
