American designers Charles (1907-1978) and his wife Ray (1912-1988) Eames made groundbreaking contributions to many creative fields including architecture, furniture design, industrial design, graphic design, fine arts and film. Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Charles Eames grew up in America's industrial heartland. As a young man he worked for engineers and manufacturers, anticipating his lifelong interest in mechanics and the complex working of things. Ray Kaiser, born in Sacramento, California, demonstrated her fascination with the abstract qualities of ordinary objects early on. She spent her formative years in the orbit of New York's modern art movements and participated in the first wave of American-born abstract artists.

The couple married in 1941 and moved from Michigan, where they had met at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, to Los Angeles and established an office together. With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Modern and minimal. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

DSW Fiberglass Side Chair Dark Maple

DSW Fiberglass Side Chair Dark Maple

Originally launched in 1950, the Fiberglass Chair Collection introduced the idea of the multifunctional chair, featuring shells that could be combined with a variety of bases, and soon became one of the best-known furniture pieces of the twentieth century.

The DSW Chair’s shell displays the characteristic irregular surface of Fiberglass, which appears almost like a natural material thanks to its clearly visible fibres.

An organic yet contemporary form, the seat rests upon a solid dark maple base with steel ‘Eiffel’ cross struts and features rubber shock mounts to support longer periods of sitting down. In continual development for the modern user, Vitra has revised the geometry of the seat to achieve optimum ergonomics and comfort.
