Manufacturer: Vitra

Designer: Charles & Ray Eames 1951

This is an original genuine Vitra piece.

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames out of welded steel wire, the Wire Chair is a variation on the theme of the organically shaped one-piece seat shell, pairing transparent lightness with technological sophistication. The wire shell can be joined with a variety of different bases and is offered without upholstery, with a seat cushion, or with a two-piece seat and back cushion known as the ‘Bikini’ pad due to its shape.

The Wire Chairs have a powder-coated finish; some models are also available in a chrome-plated version. DKR and DKX models with a powder-coated finish are suited for both indoor and outdoor use.

In 2016, Vitra added roughly 20 mm to the base height of the Wire Chairs while adapting the seat geometry accordingly. These revisions, which are aesthetically almost imperceptible, increase the comfort of this classic chair design, especially in combination with contemporary tables.

DKX: Dining Height K-Wire Shell X-Base

Materials: Seat shell: bent and welded steel wire, chrome-plated or powder-coated.

Base: four-legged tubular steel base, surface finish matched to seat shell. Fitted with plastic glides for carpet; felt glides for hard floors optionally available.

Dimensions: Width 49cm x Depth 51cm x Height 85cm (Seat Height)

Please note the white and basic dark powder-coated versions are suitable for outdoor use.

Outdoor use: unupholstered version with powder-coated base suitable for utilisation outdoors on a temporary or seasonal basis, following care instructions. After prolonged exposure to the elements, clean and store away in a dry, sheltered place to ensure lasting use and avoid any deterioration in appearance.
