Charles & Ray Eames feature among the most important figures of twentieth century design. Their work is multi-faceted: they developed funiture, produced films and photographs, organised exhibitions and designed and built their own house as a pioneering endeavour. Vitra has produced and marketed the furniture designs of Charles & Ray Eames since 1957. First producing under license, Vitra obtained exclusive rights to all Eames products for Europe and the Middle East in 1984. Consequently, we are the sole legitimate manufacturer of Eames designs in this part of the world. The brand gives you the security of owning an original product by Charles & Ray Eames.

Tandem Seating is a robust modular system enabling comfortable and relaxed seating in public waiting areas, for example at airports or train stations. It is designed to withstand an exceptional level of wear-andtear. The resilient seat and back upholstery can be exchanged on site. The generous seat surface and the sandwich structure of the upholstery offer great seating comfort. The simple modular system enables the units to be added together at will or linked with table-tops to form an enclosed configuration.
