Designed by Charles & Ray Eames in 1950
In 1948, Charles and Ray Eames participated in the 'International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design', organised by the New York Museum of Modern Art, entering a chair with a seat shell moulded to fit the contours of the human body along with a concept for a variety of bases. Their design won second prize. However, the metal seat shell proved too complex and expensive to achieve successful mass production. The couple's search for alternative materials eventually led them to glass-fibre, a charming and pleasant material. The so-called Eiffel Tower base of the Eames Fiberglass Chair DSR (Dining Height Side Chair Rod Base), an intricate and graceful construction made of steel wire, combines light, elegant forms with structural strength. Available in 9 of the original colours.
