Vitra Eames DSW Side Chair, Ocean

Special offer

    As featured in Elle Decoration

Product information

Ultra-stylish and surprisingly comfortable, the iconic Eames DSW is made from a moulded shell that's designed for every 'body', atop a minimalist maple wood base with black metal struts.

Every colour in our selection complements each other, so you can mix and match to suit your decor. The polypropylene shell is dyed through, so the colour will never fade.

Highly influential and endlessly imitated, husband and wife team Charles and Ray Eames revolutionised 20th Century furniture design. They combined their respective disciplines in architecture and modern art with low-cost yet durable materials to create perfectly balanced, functional furniture.

The Eames’ works have proved to be real ‘designs for life’: they’re iconic art pieces and objects of desire, yet utterly practical.

Originally made in fibreglass for the 1950 MOMA Low Cost Furniture design competition, the DSR was the first industrially-produced plastic chair.
