The back rest features three stitched on cushions in leather, adding an interesting contrast to the slim profile of the chair. The EA 219 features a higher back than the EA 217, offering more support to the back, neck and shoulders. Featuring a backwards tilt mechanism which can be regulated and set in the forward most position if required and a fully adjustable seat height which is operated via a pneumatic spring. The armrests are in polished die cast aluminium, with a choice of polished or chromed 5 star castor base. Vitra grants a 30 year guarantee with all the Soft Pad Group chairs, certificate supplied.
