The design of the Soft Pad Group dates from the year 1969. In terms of both construction and shape, the Soft Pad Chairs are similar to the design of the Aluminium Group, but their sewn-on cushions create a striking contrast to the slender aluminium 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.
Vitra has produced the Soft Pad chairs over a period of decades in the same superior quality. This experience allows us to offer a 30-year guarantee on all of the models in the Soft Pad Group.
The Soft Pad Chair EA 222 is a lounge version that offers ultimate comfort, thanks to its low seat, high backrest and tilt mechanism, which can be adjusted to the user's weight. For a place to prop up one's feet, it can be attractively paired with the stool EA 223. The combination of EA 222 and EA 223 is a perfect match for long cosy evenings with a good book. The covers are available in leather, which comes in a wide variety of colours.
