Design classics made of wire

The Wire Chairs by Charles and Ray Eames are formally a variation of the Eames Plastic Side Chairs. DKR with the legendary "Eiffel Tower base", combines transparency and functionality.

Unupholstered or with removable cushion

With the Wire Chair, made of welded steel wire, Charles and Ray Eames varied the theme of the organically shaped, one-piece seat shell with an expression of light transparency and high technicality. They are available with different bases. The Wire Chairs are available unupholstered, with a seat cushion or equipped with seat and back cushions. The latter are also called "bikini" because of their shape.

In different variants, the chairs are available with cushions or individually, so that upholstery can be easily added later if necessary.

Ideal height

In 2016, Vitra increased the height of the Wire Chairs' base frames by approximately 20 mm and adjusted their geometry accordingly. These measures, which are hardly noticeable aesthetically, give the classic chair improved seating comfort in combination with contemporary tables.
