Designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1969, the shape and structure of the Soft Pad Chair is identical to that of the Aluminium Chair. However, stitched leather upholstery renders it more comfortable and makes for an interesting contrast with its slim aluminium profile. Vitra has produced the Soft Pad programme for many decades to a consistently high quality. On the basis of this experience Vitra grant a 30-year guarantee on all chairs of the Soft Pad Group. Available with leather upholstery and fabric back panel with either a chromed or polished aluminium backward tilt and swivel frame on hard castors (carpet) or soft castors (hard floors).
