Vitra at Orgatec: EA Group in dark chrome


Vitra exhibited 20 new products on their stand at Orgatec in Cologne last week, by designers such as Antonio Citterio; Alberto Meda; Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec; Konstantin Grcic; Hella Jongerius and pas masters Charles & Ray Eames and Verner Panton.

The Office in Motion concept – activity, dynamism and motion characterising the ergonomic work environment – is an important motivator in Vitra’s approach and one of the themes of their presentation at Orgatec.

One stand-out for me was that some pieces from the Aluminium Group are now available in a “Dark Chrome” version, with dark chrome-plated aluminium parts. The EA Group products are amongst my favourites of 20th Century design.

The seat cover is made of premium leather on both sides and its armrests are also covered in high-quality leather. These materials, brought together in a painstaking manufacturing process, create the well-known silhouette of this iconic classic, but with new, modern touches. The Soft Pad Group and the Segmented Tables are also available in Dark Chrome.
