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.

About the Designers

Charles Eames & Ray Eames

Husband-and-wife design team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames were among the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Their landmark contributions include furniture, architecture, film, and graphics. They were pioneers in the molding of plywood, which was developed from their experiments and projects for the U.S. Navy. Their association with the Museum goes back to 1940, with a joint entry with Eero Saarinen in the MoMA competition "Organic Design in Home Furnishings." Since then nearly 100 examples of their work have entered the Museum's design collection.
