The Aluminium Chair EA 117 is known as one of the great furniture designs of the 20th century. This chair was designed in 1958 by Charles and Ray Eames for the private residence of an art collector in Columbus, Indiana (USA). The designer couple developed the chair in a way that it adapts to the body of the sitter, making it exceedingly comfortable even without an upholstery. The Aluminium Group includes several different products for use in homes, offices and public areas. Vitra has continuously produced the Aluminium Chair EA 117 over the past decades in the same superior quality.
