This is a genuine original Vitra piece.
The shape and structure of the Soft Pad Chair is identical to that of the Aluminium Chair. However stitched leather upholstery renders it softer and more comfortable and makes for an interesting contrast with its slim aluminium profile. Vitra grants a 30-year guarantee on all chairs of the Soft Pad Group.
The upholstery on all Soft Pad chairs has been modified and now utilises an innovative viscoelastic foam. This increases the chairs comfort whilst also ensuring the lasting resilience of the upholstery.
