Aluminium Chairs EA 131/132 – Home Office

Charles & Ray Eames, 1958

The Aluminium Chairs EA 131 and EA 132 are equipped with an adjustable tilt mechanism and an upright seat adapted to desk work. Due to the absence of castors, they do not have the appearance of task chairs and their relaxed inviting look makes a perfect addition to any home office. The two models vary only in their width: EA 132 is slightly narrower than EA 131.

Eames Aluminium Group

The Aluminium Chair is one of the great furniture designs of the twentieth century. Charles and Ray Eames conceived and developed this chair in 1958 for the private residence of an art collector in Columbus, Indiana (USA). For its construction, the designer couple departed from the principle of the seat shell, instead stretching a panel of fabric or leather between two aluminium side members to create a taut but elastic seat. The chair adapts to the body of the sitter and is exceedingly comfortable, even without elaborate upholstery. Vitra has produced Aluminium Group chairs in the same superior quality for decades. This outstanding quality allows us to offer a 30-year warranty* on all the chairs in the Aluminium Group. The Aluminium Group includes several different models for use in homes, offices and public spaces: the Aluminium Chairs EA 101/103/104 serve as ideal dining chairs, while the Aluminium Chairs EA 105/107/108 are primarily used for conference settings – however, all of these models can be used for either purpose. The Aluminium Chairs EA 115/116 and EA 124/125 form two groups of lounge chairs, and the Aluminium Chairs EA 117/119 are the task chairs in this large product family. Thanks to this wide range of models, a variety of aluminium bases with a polished, chrome-plated or black powder-coated finish, and a large selection of colours for fabric or leather upholstery, the perfect Aluminium Chair can be found for every environment. *To benefit from the extended warranty, your product must belong to the Eames Aluminium Group and have been purchased from a certified dealer after 1 September 2003.
