More about the Eames DSW Plastic Chair

The Plastic Chairs, or rather Fiberglass Chairs were another successful attempt by Charles and Ray Eames, following their plywood chairs, to design ergonomic chairs that are suited for mass production. A relevant aspect was the fabrication of a integral seat shell. In the process they made fiberglass reinforced plastic accessible to furniture production and the Plastic Chairs became and - 65 years after their introduction - still are a resounding success. 

A key factor are the different available base variations that give the uniform shell varying expressions and allow the Eames Plastic Chairs to integrate themselves comfortably into your interior design concept. 

The version presented here features a wooden base, well suited to create a soothing atmosphere or just add a homely touch without seeming glutted or outmoded. Even without any padding the ergonomic form makes this Eames Chair very comfortable.  

The different variations of Plastic Chairs allow wonderful combinations with each other or can be placed selectively by themselves.

The fiberglass reinforced plastic used today is harmless for our health. Unlike the fiberglass of the 50s that turned out to be potentially hazardous for health and environment. For many years the entire series was produced with ABS plastic until the industry was able to eliminate the risks and the material became useful for daily use again.
