The design of the Soft Pad Group dates from the year 1969. In terms of both construction and shape, these chairs are similar to the design of the Aluminium Group, but their sewn-on cushions create a striking contrast to the slender aluminum profiles. The Soft Pad Chairs are softer and more voluptuous than the chairs in the Aluminium Group, but without losing the clean clarity of their common silhouette. The chairs adapt to the body of the sitter and provide extraordinary comfort.
The model is the office swivel chair in the Soft Pad Group by Charles and Ray Eames. Their dignified aura makes them especially suited for management areas. The extraordinary comfort of the chairs results from the combined effect of their tilt mechanism, which can be adjusted to the user’s weight, and the soft upholstery.
