Timeless classic chair

The Eames Plastic Chairs by Vitra are in the meantime a part of the absolute classics in living rooms. In 1950, the Eames Chair was the first serially produced plastic chair in the history of furniture. Thus, the chair is more than just a piece of furniture - but a piece of cultural history. The different seats and bases are the reasons why the multipurpose chair appears to be usable for many rooms. A real all-rounder in homes and private places.

Classic form - new seat height

The Eames plastic armchair DAX (dining height armchair X-base) is offered by Vitra, in many different varieties, colours and with different bases. This is how the chair can be put together as you would like it. Since 2015, the base has been available with a new height of 43cm. This is Vitra's response to the increased average body height since first going to production in 1950. With the adapted height, the Plastic side Chair by Charles and Ray Eames provides special seating comfort.

Due to the low difference in height "old" and "new" versions of the Chair can however be mixed safely so that new chairs can be added to already existing seating.

Multifunctional chair
The plastic side chairs and armchairs with their low-key polypropylene seat shell shape and the filigree frame are absolute classics for living rooms The classic is to be found everywhere, not only in living rooms but also in universities, waiting rooms, cafés and other facilities.

Please note: as standard, the Eames Plastic Armchair DAX is delivered with dark felt glides. Should you want to order plastic glides, you can set this using the selection box or by entering a message in the comments box.
