Eames DSW: the Chair Classic from the 50s

The Vitra Plastic Side Chairs are undoubtedly an absolute classic when it comes to the living area. The design came about in 1948 for the MoMa exhibition ‘Low Cost Furniture Design’. Just two years later - in 1950 - the chair design went into production. As the first serially produced plastic chair in furniture history, Charles and Ray Eames truly wrote design history with the Plastic Side & Armchairs.

Material Mix: Wood & Plastic

The DSW is a contemporary variant of the Eames Plastic Side Chair, which was originally produced with a fiberglass seat shell. Now however the chair from Vitra is produced in an environmentally friendly variant with polypropylene. The unusual mix of a plastic seat shell and wooden frame has since become a source of inspiration for many designers. Thanks to the material mix and the endless variety of colors, the chair can be composed as you desire and easily integrated into your living area.

Classic Shape - New Seat Height

The Eames Plastic Side Chair (Dining Height Side Chair Wooden Base) is offered by Vitra in many different variations, colors and with different frames. This is how the chair can be put together as you would like it. Since 2015, the frame has been available with a new height of 43 cm.
This is Vitra’s response to the increased average body size since first going to production in 1950. With its adjusted height, the Plastic Side Chair by Charles and Ray Eames offers even more seating comfort.

Multifunctional Chair

In addition to the then innovative production of the plastic seat shell, the Plastic Side Chair was a highlight back in the day thanks to its many variations.Even today you’ll find the Eames Chair not just in living areas, but in waiting rooms, cafés, canteens and other public places.The restrained form and the delicate frame make the Plastic Side Chair DSW a genuine all-rounder in residential and commercial areas.
