DKW Wire Chair Basic Dark

From: £475.00


Designed in 1951 by iconic duo Charles and Ray Eames, the DKW Wire Chair is an instantly recognisable piece, showcasing the signature ‘Eiffel’ base with a basic dark wire frame.

Reflecting the form of the archetypal Eames Plastic Chair, the DKW is a reimagination of the fluid plastic frame in spot-welded black powder-coated wire, awarding it a transparent, industrial-inspired aesthetic.

Elevated on the signature cross-strut base, the technical appearance of the wire shell is counterbalanced with the warmth of four lightly rounded maple legs, dark-stained to complement the basic dark frame.

An elegant and distinctive design, the DKW Wire Chair is instantly recognisable as an authentic Eames piece and is produced to exacting standards by prestigious collective Vitra.
