Product Description

Eames® Molded Plastic Side Chair with Wire Base (DSR)

Designed in 1948 by Charles and Ray Eames, whose work is represented in the Museum's collection, and first presented at MoMA in the International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture, the molded plastic chair was the first plastic chair to be mass-produced. The current models are exact reproductions of the original designs, with clean, simple forms sculpted to fit the body. They are made with recycled and recyclable materials. Made by Herman Miller.

History

Mid-Century Design

Following World War II, a number of factors combined to foster a new direction in home products and furniture. New materials, such as molded plywood and plastic, and advances in mass production techniques opened a world of design options. Through the efforts of companies like Herman Miller, their longtime design director George Nelson, and the influential team of Charles and Ray Eames, these new designs could be produced for a broad market. A new vocabulary of ergonomic form, versatile function, and synthetic material emerged—and some of the most beloved furniture of the century was created.
