Charles E. Alu Office Chair EA 124

The classic design of Charles E.’s Alu Group Chair EA 124, featuring quality leather upholstery coupled with an elegant aluminium frame, is highly sought-after. With its high backrest and head cushion, the chair is wonderfully ergonomic, offering great comfort to balance the fast pace of the work environment. The careful selection of high-grade materials, and the technical skill to attach the upholstery inside the aluminium frame, creates the sophisticated look and the popular, slender profile of the chair. The quality aluminium ensures the stability of the furniture and adds to the lightness of the design.

BauhausItalia produces the iconic EA 124 chair with a high backrest and additional head cushion in classic or premium leather upholstery in several colours with the trademark aluminium cross-shaped base. The chair is also equipped with a swivel and tilt 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".
