Vitra Eames DKW-2 Wire Chair with Seat & Back Pads
Designer: Charles Ray & Eames, 1951
This is an original genuine Vitra piece.
The Wire Chair was created the same year as the Eames Plastic Chair and, like this chair, is a sign of Charles and Ray Eames intense study of the design of the one-piece, organically shaped seat shell. The seat shell of chrome-plated steel wires gives the amazingly comfortable chair the expression of technical lightness.
Now the Wire Chair is available with a dark powder coating. This emphasises the transparency of the seat shell and gives the chair a homely touch. DKW, another new model with a wooden base, amplifies this homely touch even further. For the maple base, various wood shades are available.
Materials: Back & Seat: Shaped and welded, powder coated.
Base: Four-legged wooden base.
Dimensions: Width: 49cm x Depth 51cm x Height 85cm (seat height: 43cm)
Also available with seat pad (DKW-5) on request.
