A wonderful desk chair, model EA 118, designed by Charles & Ray Eames, manufactured by Vitra in Germany around 2000.
This office chair is one of the most recognizable pieces of mid-century design! Designed in 1958 for the private residence of an art collector in Columbus, Indiana (USA). It is made with a technique that was unique at the time: stretching a panel of fabric or leather between two aluminium side members to create a strong, elastic seat. This adds to a wonderful seating comfort as the seat adapts to the body of the sitter. These chair is upholstered in high quality black hopsack, which contrasts beautifully to the bright aluminium frame.
It has the Vitra logo at the frame, as shown in photos.
It remains in very good, vintage condition with minor wear consistent with age and use, preserving a beautiful patina.
