Aluminium Task Chair EA 118 by Vitra

Aluminium Task Chair EA 118


Designed by Charles and Ray Eames. The swivel-based models EA 117, EA 118 and EA 119 are the task chairs in the iconic Aluminium Group by Charles and Ray Eames.
They are equipped with a tilt mechanism that can be adjusted to the weight of the user, providing for optimum comfort.
Models EA 117 and EA 118 are distinguishable from EA 119 by their lower backrests. EA 118 also has a somewhat narrower seat, and the sitting position of this model is more specifically suited for table-oriented activities.

Upholstery available in a wide range of fabrics or leather. Simply select the colour and then add a note of your choice at checkout or email us.
