Soft Pad Group

Charles & Ray Eames, 1969

alt

The design of the Soft Pad Group dates from the year 1969. In terms of both construction and shape, these chairs are similar to the design of the Aluminium Group, but their sewn-on cushions create a striking contrast to the slender aluminium profiles. The Soft Pad Chairs are softer and more voluptuous than the chairs in the Aluminium Group, but without losing the clean clarity of their common silhouette. The chairs adapt to the body of the sitter and provide extraordinary comfort.

Vitra has produced the Soft Pad Group chairs over a period of decades in the same superior quality. This experience allows us to offer a 30-year guarantee* on all of the chair models in the Soft Pad Group.

*The guarantee is that if any Aluminium Group or Soft Pad Group chair purchased by you after 1st of September 2003 develops a manufacturing or materials fault within 30 years from the date you purchased it, Vitra will repair or replace it free of charge.
Note that surface marking, weathering and normal wear and tear is not covered by the guarantee, nor is damage caused by deliberate attack or misuse. This guarantee is in addition to your statutory rights.
