Chair with armrests and wooden base
The Eames Chair from Vitra has recently become one of the absolute living classics. The Eames Fiberglass Armchair DAW (Dining Height Armchair Wooden Base) can be used anywhere thanks to its robust seat shell and its discreet appearance.
The Plastic Armchairs by Charles and Ray Eames were first presented in 1950 as part of the "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The organically shaped plastic seat shell was later combined with various bases and produced millions of times.
After the chair had been on the market for many years in its original form, the production of the fibreglass shell was discontinued at the beginning of the 1990s for environmentally friendly reasons and instead made of polypropylene. Now, with improved manufacturing techniques, the chair returns to its origins and is again made by Vitra with fiberglass fibers in some of the original colors. The four-legged frame is available in chrome-plated or powder-coated steel in basic dark.
The DAW can be arranged in the private area at the dining table, desk or individually in the corridor, but also finds its place in restaurants and hotels.
