Vitra Soft Pad Chair by Charles & Ray Eames. The shape and structure of the Soft Pad Chair is identical to that of the Aluminium Chair. However, the stitched leather upholstery renders it more comfortable and makes for an interesting contrast with its slim aluminium profile. The Vitra Soft Pad Chair can swivel and has an adjustable back tilt. It is upholstered with five stitched-on cushions in leather and has an aluminium frame and base.
