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.

  • DAR stands for dining height, armchair, rod base.
  • Commonly referred to as the Eiffel chair (because of the shape of the base).

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.

Meeting all my expectations!
After a long anticipated delivery, I can only say that the Eames Molded Plastic Armchair met all my expectations in terms of high quality, timeless and 'easy to match' design, materials, and comfort. While researching I considered purchasing the side chair #without arm rests# but am now very happy I opted for the armchair as it gives extra comfort when you are having a long sit during for example a nice dinner with you friends or working on your laptop by the dinner table. I live in a small NYC apartment and needed versatile furniture that looks good either for a meal or as a work station - all objectives have been met!
