DSW (Dining Side Shell Wood) is a version of the Eames Plastic Side Chair with a wooden base, which Charles and Ray Eames first used in 1951 in connection with the Wire Chair. 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.
