Product Description:

Manufacturer: Vitra

Designer: Charles & Ray Eames 1950

This is an original genuine Vitra piece.

Eames Plastic Side Chair is a contemporary version of the legendary Fibreglass Chair. It was produced in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the Museum of Modern Art's Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition and was the first industrially manufactured plastic chair. Non-stackable four-legged tubular steel base.

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 tubular steel chromed or  white or basic dark coated base.

Dimensions: Height 830mm x Width 465mm x Depth 550mm

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

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.
