The Eames Plastic Armchair DAW Upholsterd was designed by Charles and Ray Eames for the manufacturer Vitra.
This Swiss firm first made its name in the late '50s as the European distributor of trend-setting furniture and décor from the USA. Pre-eminent among these were the works of Charles and Ray Eames. Together, this husband-and-wife team were responsible for a stream of designs like the Eames Plastic Armchair DAW Upholsterd that would go on to become icons of the period.
Measuring 83cm in height and 62.5cm in width, with a seat height of 43cm, the Eames Plastic Armchair DAW Upholsterd features many of the hallmarks of this influential design duo - in particular, the Eames' eye for bold silhouettes and their interest in mixing traditional and modern materials. At the heart of the design is a one-piece polypropylene shell covered in foam, which is attached to a four-legged steel base buttressed with steel rods. Balancing the industrial and the rustic, the armchair makes a stylish addition to offices, foyers and contemporary homes. Accessories for this model include felt gliders, non-slip cushions and seat mats.
