Eames Plastic Armchair DAW
The plastic armchairs, designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950, were first presented at the "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition of the MoMA in New York. The organic formed seats made of plastic were later combined with different bases and were millionfold produced. Their actual version, which is made of polypropylen gives you a more improved seating comfort.
Classic shape - new seta heights
The Eames Plastic Side Chair (Dining Height Armchair Wooden Base) is made by Vitra in different editions, colours and with different bases. This is how the chair can be combined as desired. The base is also available with a heigth of 43 cm since 2015. This is how Vitra reacts to the growing average body size, which changed since the first production of the chair in 1950. It is more comfortable still with this adapted height.
The unusual material mix of conical running feet made of maple with diagonal round bar steel, which together result to a strong, static construction, gives this chair an independent character. The Eames Chair is part of many private homes today, but also of entrance halls, restaurants and other public places. The withdrawing shape and the filigree base are the reasons why the DAW is a real all-rounder in every place.
Please note: The Eames Plastic Side Chair DAW is delivered with white or black felt pads depending on the ordered base. Plastic pads are also available. If you desire a different seat, base or pad colour, please contact our customer service.Also in our blog:
