Charles and Ray Eames designed the Eames Plastic Side Chair DSS for the Vitra label.
When this Swiss company opened its doors in 1950 to the world's best furniture designers, married couple Charles and Ray Eames were ready to walk inside and contribute. Graphic designers by training, the Eames couple had identified a market for furniture that was as witty as it was attractive and comfortable. Over the decades, the Eames moulded plywood chair, with its ergonomic padding and matching footrest, has become a design classic, influencing an entire generation of chairs and seating furniture.
The Eames Plastic Side Chair DSS is one of the couple's creations. Standing 81cm in height, it has a width of 52cm and is 55cm in depth. The chair's elegant polypropylene shell rests on a chrome base and linking element. Useful side handles add a decorative touch to this base. The chair is striking on its own, and a group of them in various colours will look magnificent in any space - they also stack up for convenience when storing. Accessories include the Vitra Dots seat cushion, 38cm in diameter, and protective felt floor gliders.
