Additional Information

Description

Charles and Ray Eames believed that “design is a method of action,” and they continually updated their work as new materials became available. Their Molded Plastic chairs were originally designed in metal and entered as a prototype in MoMA’s 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design. They then changed the material to fiberglass in 1950, and today the chairs are made of recyclable polypropylene. Charles was dissatisfied with the fiberglass, and it wasn’t until after his death that the matte finish he desired was achieved, thanks to advances in materials. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.” The deep seat pocket and waterfall seat edge keep you comfortable by reducing pressure on the backs of thighs. This is an authentic chair by Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Contract quality. Made in U.S.A.

  • DAX stands for dining height, armchair with X-base, which is a bit abstract, since you have to turn over the chair to see how the base forms an X.

Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and 1950s. It was a revolution of form, an exciting visual language that signaled a new age and a fresh start – and two of its prime movers were Charles and Ray Eames. The Eameses were a husband-and-wife team whose unique synergy led to a whole ...

Just like the original!
A very nice chair. I had two original Eames arm chairs and these new ones feel exactly like the originals in comfort and ergonomics. The new colors and fabrics are very good and refreshing.

Sleek in design, very comfortable and easy to clean.
Love my Eames molded plastic armchairs with maple legs. Chairs are quite comfortable and sleek in design. I chose the color Sparrow as this neutral color compliments a beige leather couch. I also previously purchased (4) four Sand-color Eames molded plastic armchairs with stainless steel legs for my dining room table. To me, the best feature of these chairs is the fact that I don't have to worry if a guest spills something on a chair - just wipe it off with a damp cloth!

I'm one happy customer and highly recommend this comfortable chair.
