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.

  • DSX stands for dining height, side chair 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 ...

Clean, comfortable, attractive and lightweight
I love these chairs! Had a chance to sit in one on display in a furniture store back East, and loved how comfortable they were. Timing was perfect, because I'd been looking for new dining room chairs. These were by far the most comfortable of all the ones I sat in.

Once I got back home, I did some research online and found the Eames molded plastic side chair on the Herman Miller site. Glad I went with black (coordinates with my existing dining room table), glad they were available for shipping in a matter of days.

Extremely pleased with my purchase. The chairs look and feel even better than expected. In fact, as soon as I got the first four, I ordered four more: two side chairs, and two armchairs. Love 'em! They give my dining room a whole different, lighter feel.

I did spring for the white glove service, and am glad I did. I live in a high rise, so it was great to have someone else haul away all that packaging. All I had to do was hold the door, smile, sign the paperwork, and enjoy!

Herman Miller customer service is so great placed my order over the phone and because another retailer of these chairs was running free shipping they honored it too! Plus they upgraded my shipping, they were here in no time! Can't say how they hold up as we just got them but so far so good!
