The Plastic Chairs by Charles and Ray Eames were the very first chairs to be developed out of plastic for industrial production. Their organically shaped seat shells can be combined with a variety of different bases. The DAX chair (Dining Height Armchair X/Base) has a visually understated four/legged tubular steel base, which comes in a powder/coated version that is also suited for outdoor applications.
- Seat shell: dyed-through polypropylene. All models are available with a seat cushion (screwed to the seat shell) or full upholstery. The fully upholstered version has moulded polyurethane foam padding covered in fabric, attached to the shell with a welted edge. Different shell and upholstery colours and various bases provide a multitude of possible combinations.
- Options: the Eames Plastic Chair is available as a visitor chair, dining chair, rocking chair, swivel chair or in stacking versions and with ganging brackets for row seating. Beam-mounted shells are suited for use in waiting areas.
- Base: four-legged tubular steel base, chrome-plated or powder-coated. The powder-coated version is suitable for outdoor use. (DAX = Dining Height Armchair X-Base)
- Note: special additives retard the fading of colours due to UV radiation. However, if the chair is exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods, the colour may change over time. We recommend limited exposure to sunlight.
