Description
Charles Eames - ICF - Office chair - EA 117
Italy - 1975-2000 - Textiles

The EA 117 aluminium chair with wheels and armrests is a key component of the Aluminium Chair Group, a classic collection that has won numerous awards worldwide and is considered by many to be one of the greatest design successes of the 20th century.

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1958, the EA 117 is a classic example of how this world-renowned team of husband and wife has combined innovation, vision and new production methods to create very modern pieces of furniture that are functional, beautiful and original.
The EA 117 aluminium chair with static feet and gas lift system, is simply a triumph of style and technology: if you invest in this chair you will invest in a piece of design history.

This specimen produced by ICF is of a beautiful dark green colour, original of the 80s, used very little, and practically new, perfect in its chrome-plating and in its fabric, the aluminium is chrome-plated but not polished, a touch of extra class.
