A more luxurious version of the EA 217 the EA 219 has a higher backrest for increased comfort and executive style. The chair shares the same aesthetics as the iconic Aluminium Group but is distinguished by cushioned upholstery and a more padded look. The EA 219 form adapts to fit the shape of the body while the aluminium frame offers lightness and stability. It is upholstered by hand in premium leather and is available in five colours - black, brown, dark brown, red and white. The base is height adjustable and can be swiveled as desired. The five feet are fitted with wheels for ease of movement.
Designed in 1969, the EA 219 is an evolution of the Aluminium Group, an iconic collection of chairs characterized by their intelligent use of materials. The covers of the chairs are attached inside the aluminium side sections and simply stretched over the frame. The EA 219 then goes a step further with the addition of stitched cushions along the backrest and seat. Also known as the Eames Soft Pad Executive Office Chair, the EA219 is perfect for home offices and stylish businesses.
Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States)
Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple’s most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
