Designed by Charles & Ray Eames in 1950
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 DAX ( (Dining Height Armchair X-Base) is available in a chrome-plated or powder-coated version. In collaboration with the Eames family, Vitra has updated the colour palette of the iconic Eames Plastic Chair seating shells. The colours for the seat shell have been chosen to enhance the material in any environment. In the palette offers you discover 14 contemporary shades - neutral, medium and bright. Mix and match as you like!
