Charles & Ray Eames in 1950

Extensive dining becomes a real pleasure in this comfortable chair. The Eames Plastic Side Chair was designed in 1950 for the Low Cost Furniture Design competition by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The chair with a choice of bases was the very first industrially manufactured chair in plastic. Thanks to the organic seating shell, you can enjoy high-quality comfort. In 2015, the seat geometry and height of the Plastic Chairs were adapted to today's requirements. The base of the Eames Plastic Side Chair DSX (Dining Height Side Chair X-Base) is available in a chrome-plated or powder-coated version, the latter of which can be used in gardens or on terraces.

Over the years and in ongoing consultation with the Eames family, Vitra has introduced more sustainable materials for the seat shells of the Eames Shell Chairs. As of 2024 the shells of the Eames Plastic Chairs are now made of recycled plastic and the chair family is known as Eames Plastic Chair RE. The high-quality recycled material stems from household recycling, particularly used packaging, obtained through the 'Yellow Bag' (Gelber Sack) collection programme in Germany. Utilising this raw material instead of petroleum-based primary plastics generates fewer climate-damaging emissions, with a significant reduction in primary energy consumption. Due to the composition of the recycled material, the different colours are interspersed with tiny specks of pigment. The colour white has been replaced by cotton white RE, however the original white polypropylene version is expected to still be available until December 2024. Like the seat shells of Eames Plastic RE, it is 100% recyclable at the end of its product life.
