The Eames Fiberglass Armchair DAW Dark Maple Base was designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the brand Vitra.
American husband and wife Charles and Ray Eames have been named as two of the world's most influential designers. They were among the first to introduce the use of plywood and plastic in large-scale furniture production. The design duo won numerous awards, including the Royal Gold Medal in 1979 and the "Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century" award in 1985. The Swiss furniture company Vitra is known for manufacturing internationally acclaimed designs.
To this day, the Eames Fiberglass Armchair DAW Dark Maple Base remains among the most popular pieces designed by Charles and Ray Eames. This classic furniture item, part of the couple's iconic collection of moulded plastic chairs, was first put into production in 1950 and has remained unchanged ever since, making it a prized possession for lovers of designer furniture. This classic chair features a fibreglass shell as well as a steel and wood base. With its minimalist shape and clear lines, this armchair will fit seamlessly into any interior and can be combined with other items by the same designers.
