Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. Available in side and armchair versions, today's molded plastic chairs are true to the originals and are fully authentic, with updated materials to meet environmental requirements. Their enduring forms and quality construction make them comfortable, durable performers.
New materials, especially those that held promise for doing more with less, fascinated Charles and Ray Eames throughout their careers. Their fascination led to inventive modern furniture, such as the molded plastic chair. Designed in 1948, it was the first plastic chair to be mass produced. The Eames molded plastic armchair is also available with a wire base. A true landmark of modern design.

In the late 40's and early 50's, Charles and Ray Eames experimented with fiberglass seating and revolutionized mass produced chair design. From one basic shell, Eames designed a whole series of shapes and variations. The DSW is available with a plastic or fiberglass seat that is connected to solid timber legs using rubber shock mounts, resulting in a comfortable seat even over long periods of time. Available in a variety of colours. Our version is made to the style of the original design.
