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: Seat shell: dyed-through, recycled polypropylene, 100% recyclable.

Note: due to the composition of the recycled material, the seat shell colours exhibit very subtle specks of pigment.

Base: wooden base in various shades of maple or honey-toned ash, stained and lacquered finish. Steel rod cross struts in basic dark.

Origin of wood: ash (Fraxinus excelsior) and maple (Acer platanoides) from Western Europe and/or Poland.

All models are available with a seat cushion (screwed to the seat shell) or full upholstery. The fully upholstered version has moulded polyurethane foam padding covered in fabric, attached to the shell with a welted edge. Different shell and upholstery colours and various bases provide a multitude of possible combinations.

Dimensions: Width 62.5cm x Depth 60cm x Height 83cm (seat height: 43cm)
