• Charles and Ray Eames Soft Pad Chair - EA 215/EA 216
The Soft Pad Chair was designed in 1969. In terms of construction and design it is identical to the Aluminium Chair. The attached padded sections form an interesting contrast to the elegant aluminium frame. They make the Soft Pad Chair softer and plusher, without detracting from its transparency and clear lines.

The models comprising the Soft Pad Group are suitable for a large number of uses: in the office, in conference and reception areas, but also at home. Chairs and armchairs with medium-high and high backrest, with or without armrests, optionally with leather cushion sections. Side sections, flexible metal sections, armrests and base of polished or chrome-plated die-cast aluminium. Upholstery: cushion sections in Repp (81% wool, 19% polyamide) or cowhide nappa leather which are sewn onto the frame.

Base available in four-star version, swivel or non-swivel, with glides for soft or hard floor coverings. High-backed armchair with tilting mechanism, with or without adjustment feature. Office chair with adjustable tilting mechanism and locking feature in the foremost sitting position. Height-adjustable via pneumatic safety spring. Five-star base with castors in compliance with DIN 68131, for hard or soft floor coverings. Stool: to match the high-backed armchair, non-swivel.
