The Eames Soft Pad Chair was designed in 1969 as a variation of the popular Aluminium group. Similar to the Aluminium Chair, this variant provides an elegant, structural silhouette with soft padding. The structure of the Soft Pad Chair follows the line of the body, making for a comfortable and ergonomic experience. This versatile chair is suitable for home and office use. EA 219 is the high back swivel castors version of this chair, please see EA 217 for the medium high back version.
