Chair classics

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

From 2024, all seat shells of the Eames Plastic Chairs from Vitra will be made from recycled post-consumer plastic from the German household waste collection "Der Gelbe Sack". Exception: the color white 04 will be made from the previous material until the end of 2024.

Classic shape - many variants

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

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

Multifunctional chair

With the restrained shape of the polypropylene seat shell and the delicate base frame, the Plastic Side and Armchairs are absolute living room classics. However, this classic is not only ubiquitous in the home, but also in universities, waiting areas, cafés and other facilities.

Please note: The standard version of the Eames Plastic Armchair DAR is supplied with dark felt glides as standard. If you would like plastic glides, you can specify this in the selection field or leave a comment in the comments field.
