Vitra covers Eames Lounge Chair in fabric to celebrate 60th anniversary

Swiss furniture brand Vitra is launching a limited-edition version of Charles and Ray Eames' Lounge Chair to commemorate its 60 years in production.
Vitra's update of the chair is upholstered in black twill fabric from the company's materials library instead of the traditional black leather.
The Lounge Chair Twill and matching Ottoman will be available for a limited period of three months between November 2016 and January 2017.
The company hopes the black fabric – which is complemented by warm reddish tones of palisander wood in the frame – creates a "cosy softness and inviting warmth".
While the armchair has been released with a few variations in the past, Vitra has always produced it exclusively in leather.
The newly upholstered models will also come with a corresponding label acknowledging the anniversary, along with a celebratory "60 years in Production" certificate.
Designed in 1956, the chair was originally conceived by Charles and Ray as a simple, practical and comfortable piece of furniture.
