East River Chair Leather



The striking East River Chair with leather upholstery was designed by Hella Jongerius in collaboration with Vitra in 2017 for the UN headquarters in New York.

Updated from the 2013 fabric version, the leather East River Chair featrues  an oak base with powder-coated steel cross braces and is upholstered in premium leather: a soft, smooth aniline cowhide that showcases a flat grain, dyed-through for colour and lightly pigmented for a high-quality finish.

The leather edition of the East River Chair offers exceptional comfort and spinal support due to its quilted lumbar cushion and high quality upholstery.

A calming, clean-lined form, the East River Chair is a contemporary design that would lift any modern space with its gentle curves, while being customisable, with the possibility of combining two colours from the premium leather palette.
