The aluminium chair is one of the greatest furniture designs of the 20th century. Charles and Ray Eames originally designed it in 1958 for the private residence of an art collector in Columbus, Indiana (USA). For the construction of this chair, the designer couple abandoned the principle of the seat shell, instead stretching a fabric or leather panel between two aluminium spars to create a stretched but elastic seat. The chair adapts to the body of the seated person and is extremely comfortable, even without elaborate upholstery.
The Aluminium group includes various models for use in homes, offices and public areas. Vitra has produced the Aluminium Group chairs for decades with the same superior quality. This experience allows Vitra to offer a 30-year guarantee on all models of chairs in the Aluminium group.

- Mechanical: mechanical device for adjusting the degree of inclination of the rear seat, locked in the most advanced position. Seat height adjustable with gas shutter.

- Armrests: in painted die-cast aluminium

- Base: five spokes in die-cast aluminium, painted.

EA 117 comes with adjustable feet.

This specimen from the early nineties is truly an example of the quality of the Vitra brand, in excellent condition.
