* Required Fields



The design of the Soft Pad Group dates from the year 1969. In terms of both construction and shape, these chairs are similar to the design of the Aluminium Group, but their sewn-on cushions create a striking contrast to the slender aluminium profiles. The Soft Pad Chairs are softer and more voluptuous than the chairs in the Aluminium Group, but without losing the clean clarity of their common silhouette. The chairs adapt to the body of the sitter and provide extraordinary comfort. Vitra Soft Pad Group has a 30 year guarantee on all models. Upholstered in leather with the choice of a polished or chromed four star glided base.
