Charles and Ray Eames developed the Soft Pad Chaise ES 106 for a long-time friend, the film director Billy Wilder. He had expressed the desire for a recliner that would allow him to take a short nap during shooting breaks. With its softly padded cushions and leather upholstery, the Soft Pad Chaise provides a comfortable spot to lie down and relax.
Upholstery/cover: padded leather upholstery, six fixed and two loose cushions.
Base: die-cast aluminium, powder-coated (smooth).
Range of use: recommended for residential use only.
Soft Pad Chaise
The idea for the design of the Soft Pad Chaise came from a longtime friend of Charles and Ray Eames, the film director Billy Wilder, who was in search of a recliner for taking short naps or for resting on during breaks between film shoots. Six cushions joined with zippers are attached to the aluminium frame, and two loose cushions provide extra comfort.
