The Charles Eames DSR Dining Chair is a timeless classic that will never go out of fashion. Our reproduction is a commemoration of the original and mirrors its style, quality and beauty. Moulded to the shape of the body, it's available in shiny fibreglass, matt and transparent plastic. The unique Eiffel tower legs are constructed from polished stainless steel. Like the original, our plastic version displays round markings on the seat. This is a natural result of the legs meeting the material. The chair is available in several colours including green, red, orange and blue.
THE STORY BEHIND THE DSR DINING CHAIR
Created in 1948, the DSR Dining Chair forms part of a series of moulded plastic chairs designed by husband and wife team, Charles and Ray Eames. Each one has the same ergonomically designed seat combined with different bases and arm styles. They are identified by their initials- for example, DSR stands for Dining chair, Side chair with a Rod base. This series of chairs has the iconic status of being the first industrially manufactured plastic chairs. Like its matching armchair, the Eames DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair has deep seat pocket with a curved high back and waterfall seat edge to give increased comfort.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States)
Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple's most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art's Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
