Let’s first introduce two very important figures: Ray and Charles Eames.
They were a married couple and during the early 60’s they designed chairs whose shell could be combined with different bases. That kind of chair nowadays is still considered archetype of this genre.
The first class of products you will find in our platform is named Vitra Aluminium chair and there are three different models: EA 117, EA 118 (both have the sitting position specifically thought for table-oriented activities), EA 119 (distinguishable by its higher backrest).

They are the task chairs in the Aluminium Group. What makes them special is the tilt mechanism in seat which can be adjusted to the weight of the user, providing a perfect comfort.
Moreover covers are available in several different colours, making easy to find best combination office-chair.
Charles and Ray also designed a different kind of chair, named DSR Chair (Dining Height Side Chair Rod Base), famous for the so-called Eiffel tower base, an intricate and graceful construction made by steel wire.

Another product you will find in our platform is the DSW Chair (Dining Height Side Chair Wood Base). This time Charles and Ray combined the organically shaped seat shell with a four-legged wooden base. Ideal for the dining room, the pairing of plastic and wood gives the classic design a certain warmth and a casual appeal.
