The 1951 presented Wire Chair DKR was inspired by the Plastic Chairs, launched one year before. Contrasting those, the DKR (Dining Height, K-Wire Shell, R-Wire Base) doesn’t consist of plastic, but of steel wire. The shape remains the same – only the variation of the material ensures a really independent appearance.
The designers couple Eames used wire in order to create a transparent and weightless acting structure. The Wire Chair by Vitra is also available with other bases such as the sitting cushions.Also in our blog:
