Back in the 1940s and 1950s Charles and Ray Eames revolutionized furniture design and manufacturing with their range of moulded fiberglass chairs. Not afraid to experiment with new materials, the husband and wife team set about producing a variety of mass-producible, single piece moulded fiberglass chairs; the series includes the iconic RAR, DSR, DAW, DAR and DSW chairs. Each one has the same ergonomically designed seat which is combined with different bases and armrest styles. They are identified by their initials – for example, DSW stands for Dining chair, Side chair with a Wood base. The revolutionary designs and materials used in these chairs were immediately recognised with a 1948 winning entry in the "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition of the New York Museum of Modern Art. These chairs are also known as the Eiffel chairs because of the close resemblance of the shape of the base to the iconic Parisian tower.
The DSW Chair merges Charles and Ray Eames' love of plastic with the rustic appeal of wood. Our high quality reproduction stays true to the original blueprint and is a joy to look at, touch and feel. The shell is moulded to the shape of the body and is made with shiny fiberglass available in a number of fun and vibrant colors. The legs are constructed from beech wood and black steel cross struts.
