Eames Chair - classic piece of the 50s

The Eames Plastic Side Chair, which was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950, is a contemporary version of the legendary Fibreglass Chair. It was originally made by Zenith Plastics for the Museum of Modern Art's "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition and was the first mass-produced chair out of plastic.

Material combination: wood & plastic

DSW (Dining Side Shell Wood) is the contemporary version of the Eames Plastic Side Chair which was originally made with a fiberglass seat. The chair by Vitra is made of a more environmentally-friendly material: polypropylene. The unusual combination of materials gives this chair a unique character which served as a model for many other designers. The materials and all the colours available make it possible to combine the chair with other furniture, fitting in perfectly in many homes.

Classic shape - new seat heights

The Eames Plastic Side Chair (Dining Height Side Chair Wooden Base) is made by Vitra in different editions, colours and with different bases. Thus, the chair can be put together according to your own needs. The base is also available with a height of 43 cm since 2015. This is how Vitra reacts to the growing average body size, which changed since the first production of the chair in 1950. With this adapted height, the comfort of the chair has also increased.

Multipurpose chair

In addition to the production of the plastic shell, considered as innovative back in the day, the Plastic Side Chair also became a highlight because of its particular shape. Nowadays, the Eames Chair is not only used in living rooms, but also in waiting rooms, cafes, restaurants and other public bodies. The restrained and yet expressive form with its tapered feet of maple and diagonal round steel bars gives this chair an all-rounder character which fits in well in most environments.
