Aluminium Group EA 105/108
Charles Eames, Ray Eames
The chairs in the Aluminium Group are the most famous creations by Charles and Ray Eames. Designed in 1958 they rate amongst the great achievements in the design history of the 20th century.
An important characteristic of the Aluminium Chair is the intelligent combination of materials. It has a clear, transparent form and its construction is clearly visible. Aluminium sections lend the chair both stability and lightness. The material is fixed into the side sections, yet fitted loosely so that it follows the line of the body and is comfortable without requiring extensive upholstery. This material is not a cover but an integral part of the design.
Chairs and armchairs with medium-high or high backrests, with or without armrests, also available in leather. Side sections, flexible metal elements, armrests and base in die-cast aluminium, polished or chrome-plated. Upholstery electronically sewed; cover in Hopsak (100% polyamide), netweave (100% plastic- illegible-polyester yarn) or cowhide nappa leather. Base available as four-star base, in a swivel or non-swivel version, with glides for soft or hard flooring. Armchair with high backrest and tilting mechanism, with or without adjustment feature. Office swivel chair with adjustable tilting mechanism and locking feature in the forward tilting position; height adjustment via a pneumatic safety spring; five-star base with castors in compliance with DIN 68131, for hard or soft floor surfaces.
