Charles Eames for Vitra "EA 116" Hopsack Lounge Swivel Armchair - SOLD


The EA 116 Aluminium Group easy chair from 1958 is one of the greatest furniture designs of the 20th century. It stands out for its intelligent combination of materials. It has a clear, transparent form and its construction is clearly visible.

Charles and Ray Eames 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 sling seat. The chair adapts to the body of the sitter and is extremely comfortable.

The Aluminium Chair EA 116 offers superb comfort with its high backrest. The seating height is designed so that users can easily rise from the chair but is lower than a regular desk chair.

The seat has it's original beautiful teal green blue collar fabric and it's original label on the base.


Good used condition, some slight discolouring on the fabric in places due to possible light bleaching & could do with some cleaning. Otherwise all in working order as expected.
