Traditional craftsmanship and sustainability
Since 1956 nothing has changed about the production standards of the Vitra Eames Lounge Chair: The original design by Charles & Ray Eames is
manufactured by hand for the most part using three wooden shells – for seat, backrest and headrest - put together, upholstered and set on a swivel 5-star base.
47 process steps are needed to complete the design classic and let it shine in full glory.
The original type of the Eames Lounge Chair was made of Brazilian palisander which today is under stringent species protection. The closest match to the Original Lounge Chair is the version Santos Palisander which resembles the original material greatly. For Vitra it is very important that all wood used comes from forests managed in a sustainable manner.
Vitra fulfills the quality management norm ISO 90001 as well as the environmental management norm ISO 14001.
