Chair classic - Eames Plastic Side Chair DSR
Eames Plastic Side Chair, which has been designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950, is a contemporary version of the legendary Fibreglass Chair. It was created in connection with Zenith Plastics for the "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition of the Museum of Modern Art's and was the first industrial made chair made of plastic.
Classic shape - new seta heights
The Eames Plastic Side Chair (Dining Height Side Chair Rod 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 by about 10 since the first production of the chair in 1950. It is more comfortable still with this adapted height.
The low height difference still allows to combine the chair with the ancient editions, which is why each group of chairs can be expanden without any problems.
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 DSR is a real all-rounder in every place.Also in our blog:
