Soft Pad Chaise ES 106


Designed by Charles and Ray Eames
Manufactured by Vitra

The idea for the design of the Soft Pad Chaise came from a long-time friend of Charles and Ray Eames, the film director Billy Wilder, who was in search of a recliner for taking short naps or for resting on during breaks between film shoots. Six cushions joined with zippers are attached to the aluminium frame, and two loose cushions provide extra comfort.

Vitra has produced the Soft Pad Group 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 chair models in the Soft Pad Group.

Charles and Ray Eames developed the Soft Pad Chaise ES 106 for a long-time friend, the film director Billy Wilder. He had expressed the desire for a recliner that would allow him to take a short nap during shooting breaks. With its softly padded cushions and leather upholstery, the Soft Pad Chaise provides a comfortable spot to lie down and relax.
