Few designs have the legendary status and universal appeal of the Eames DSW chair.
The original design, which was the very first industrially produced plastic chair, was jointly developed with Zenith Plastics for the ‘Low-Cost Furniture Design’ competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.
The current version is made of recyclable dyed-through polypropylene to provide even greater comfort and durability. The solid wood and wire base with cross struts features rubber shock mounts to support longer periods of sitting down.
With its simple organic shape, the Eames DSW chair now seems like an archetype of the genre of chairs whose shell can be combined with diverse bases.
The selection of bases makes it possible to use the chairs in a wide variety of settings: from the dining room or home office to the garden.
Shells come in a broad range of colours and upholstery versions, so that components can be mixed and matched to find the perfect chair for individual needs.
