Classic chair

The Plastic Armchairs, designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950, were first presented in the "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition of the Museum of Modern Arts in New York. The organically shaped plastic seat shell was later combined with various bases and produced millions of times. In their current version made of polypropylene, the armchairs offer even greater seating comfort.

Classic form - many variations

The Eames Plastic Armchair DAR (Dining Height Armchair Rod Base) is available Vitra in many different versions, colours and with different bases. This means that the chair can be assembled according to your own ideas.

Since 2015, the undercarriage has been available with a height of 43 cm, adapted to the current average size. Due to the small difference in height, however, "old" and "new" versions of the chair can be mixed without hesitation, so that existing seating groups can also be extended without difficulty.

Multifunctional chair

With the unobtrusive shape of the polypropylene seat shell and the filigree base, the Plastic Side- and Armchairs are absolute living classics. But the classic is not only omnipresent in the living area, but also in universities, waiting areas, cafés and other facilities.

Please note: As standard the Eames Plastic Armchair DAR is supplied with dark felt glides. If you wish to have plastic glides, you can set this via the selection field or enter it in the comment field.
