Charles E. Alu Office Chair EA 108

The popular EA 108 chair comprises elegance and style in a structure, purposely designed for comfort. This is why the Alu Group series was also referred as the “Leisure group” confirming the impressive relaxing qualities of the chair collection. The EA 108 is a timeless classic from 1958, which has made a mark in modern design history. The clean lines of the metal frame support an ergonomic structure, which follows the natural curves of the body. It has a unique construction, with the upholstery clamped into the frame to form an integral part of the design.

ItaliaDesigns produces the EA 108 chair with a backrest made of mesh, classic or premium leather, available in various colours. The cross-shaped base is aluminium and is fitted with glides rather than castors. The chair also has a swivel function.

About the Designer

Charles E.

Charles E.

Considered as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century, Charles E. was born in St Louis, Missouri. Perhaps decorated as the finest American designer of his generation, Charles E. was heavily influenced by his uncle’s workings, the great architect William S. Eames.

Despite a healthy education studying architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, Eames best began to put his ideas into motion whilst working as a labourer at the Laclede Steel Company in the town of his birth. Here, he received first-hand knowledge and experience in engineering, drawing and architecture, learning the moulding and treatment techniques he would later become famous for.

Both Charles E. and his wife Ray are still heavily celebrated on an international scale, especially for their work in the field of modern furniture. Both collaborated on numerous projects, earning them the AIA Twenty-five Year Award in 1977 and the prestigious Royal Gold Medal Award in 1979, a year after Charles passed away. Their work is still showcased at MoMA in New York, whilst in 1985 IDSA accredited Eames as "The Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century".
