Chair with Eiffel Tower base
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. In the powder-coated versions, it is also suitable for use in the garden and on the terrace.
Unupholstered, with seat cushion or bikini
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.
Classic chair redesigned in 2016
In 2016, Vitra increased the height of the Wire Chairs' bases by approximately 20 mm and adjusted their geometry accordingly. These measures, which are hardly noticeable from an aesthetic point of view, give the classic chair improved seating comfort in combination with contemporary tables.
Wire Chair DKW
The seat shell of spot-welded steel wire lends transparency to the Wire Chairs by Charles and Ray Eames, and the wooden base of the DKW model (Dining Chair K-Wire Wood Base) creates a homely contrast to the fundamentally technical appearance.
