Vitra Eames Aluminium Chair EA 118

The Eames Aluminium Task Chair EA 118 stands out for its intelligent use and combination of materials. The seat and back covers are attached inside the aluminium profile sections and simply stretched over the frame, transforming them from mere coverings to a load-bearing part of the structure. 

The Aluminium Chair EA 118 is very similar to the EA 117 model, however the EA 118 features reduced overall dimensions (width & depth) and a more table-oriented sitting position, as opposed to the slightly declined seat position of the EA 117.

Charles and Ray Eames conceived and developed this chair in 1958 for the private residence of an art collector in Columbus, Indiana (USA). For its construction, the designer couple departed from the principle of the seat shell, instead stretching a panel of fabric or leather between two aluminium side members to create a taut but elastic seat. The chair adapts to the body of the sitter and is exceedingly comfortable, even without elaborate upholstery.

Absolutely delighted

The chair was exactly as described. It arrived in perfect condition. The customer service was excellent and the person who took my order went above and beyond to help me choose the right options for me. Communication throughout was superb. I will definitely use this company again if I require any of their other products. It's rare to find this level of polite, helpful service nowadays.
