Eames Plastic Chair DSW
The Eames Plastic Side Chair is Vitra's re-edition of the now legendary Eames Fibreglass Chair. It is based on the original 1950 design - the first industrially manufactured plastic chair. In 1993, Vitra discontinued production for ecological reasons, as fibreglass cannot be recycled. Thanks to recent advances in technology and materials, we are now proud to offer the Eames Plastic Chair - in the exact same shape, but made of polypropylene. The chair with solid-coloured seat shell made of polypropylene on various bases. Optionally with basic dark felt glides for hard flooring. Bases with chrome finish or powder coated dark grey. The shell of the Eames Plastic Chair is connected to the metal frame using shock mounts, resulting in a comfortable seat even over long periods. The chair is a good choice for a wide variety of settings, both indoors and outdoors; for domestic use, restaurants, waiting areas, offices, conference rooms, or even large auditoriums.
DSW (Dining Side Shell Wood) is a version of the Eames Plastic Side Chairs with the wooden base that Charles and Ray Eames first used in 1951 for the Wire Chair. The unusual combination of materials with the conical round steel bars results in a solid design and lends this chair an independent character.
Wooden base in maple, stained and varnished, with basic dark tubular steel cross-supports.
Year of design: 1950
