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.
The Aluminium Chair EA 119 is distinguishable from EA 117 and EA 118 by its higher backrest. EA 118 has a somewhat narrower seat, and the sitting position of this model is more specifically suited for table-oriented activities.
