Manufacturer: Vitra

Designer: Charles & Ray Eames 1950

This is an original genuine Vitra piece.

Plastic Armchairs were first presented as part of a New York Museum of Modern Art competition Low Cost Furniture Design.

Their organically shaped plastic seat shells were later combined with various different bases and manufactured in their millions. In their latest version made of polypropylene the armchairs now offer even greater sitting comfort.

The average human height has increased worldwide by nearly 10 cm over the past 60 years, resulting in a growing awareness of the need to adapt the dimensions of classic chair designs to fit new proportions. In comparison to the taller heights of most tables and seating today, many people felt that the Eames Plastic Chairs were too low. Vitra is now responding to the requirements and needs of its customers by adding 20 mm to the height of the Eames Plastic Chairs DSX, DAX, DSR, DAR, DSW and DAW, while also revising the seat geometry. These modifications, which are aesthetically almost imperceptible, substantially increase the comfort of this classic chair design, especially in combination with contemporary tables.

Materials: Polypropylene seat shell dyed through with powder coated base.

Dimensions: Width: 63cm x Depth: 59cm x Height: 83cm (Seat Height: 43cm)

Please note these chairs are suitable for outdoor use.

Note: special additives retard the fading of colours due to UV radiation. However, if the chair is exposed to sunlight for prolonged periods, the colour may change over time. We recommend limited exposure to sunlight.
