The DCM chair, which the designer couple Charles & Ray Eames designed for Vitra, belongs to the Plywood Group Collection. DCM stands for Dining Chair Metal and describes with that the being of the chair: It is a chair, which is suitable for every reason. It is a combination made of the best wood and metal.
After various experiments to create a round coffee table, in 1946 Charles and Ray Eames came up with their "round coffee table with metal legs", a simple occasional table with a round plywood tabletop slightly raised at the edges and four slim tubular steel legs. The table goes well with the other designs in the Charles and Ray Eames Plywood Group.
For the production of the Plywood Group are wood layers bent. The thin wood shells from back to seat support the body with lightly bent areas. The single elements are tied up with elastic rubber layers on the base. They give you extra comfort.
The meeting with the legendary designer couple Charles and Ray Eames was for Vitra a fundamental meaning: With the production of their designs in 1957 started the history of the manufacturer as a furniture producer. Charles and Ray Eames impressed Vitra a lot.Also in our blog:
