American architect and designer Warren The 1951 Wire Chair evolved from the Eames' 1948 fibreglass-shelled chairs; having experimented with different bases for the shell, they now swapped the shell itself for a wire seat, giving the chair an airy, light appearance. Its distinctive seat pad shape led to the chair's nickname of 'the Bikini chair'. It is available in aniline leather in a variety of colours.
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.
