Since the early 1950s, when Charles and Ray Eames developed their Plastic Chairs, these furnishings have become icons of American mid/century modernism. In particular, the DAR chair (Dining Height Armchair Rod Base) stands out as an inimitable classic design combining light, elegant forms with structural strength in the intricate steel wire construction of its 'Eiffel Tower' base.
- 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: non-stacking four-legged tubular steel base. The powder-coated version is suitable for outdoor use. (DSX = Dining Height Side Chair 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.
