About the Designer
Charles & Ray Eames Charles & Ray Eames United States 

Charles Ormond Eames, Jr (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" (née Kaiser) Eames (1912–1988) were American designers, who worked in and made major contributions to modern architecture and furniture. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art and film.

Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. Available in side and armchair versions, Today's Molded Plastic Chairs are true to the originals and are fully authentic, with updated materials to meet environmental requirements. Charles and Ray Eames, always interested in new materials, saw in plastic the chance to form organic seat shells that conform to the body's shape. The enduring forms and quality construction make the Molded Plastic Chairs - available here with a classic Eames wire base - comfortable, durable performers. The Design: New materials, especially those that held promise for doing more with less, fascinated Charles and Ray Eames throughout their careers. Their fascination led to inventive modern furniture, such as the Molded Plastic Chair. Designed in 1948, it was the first plastic chair to be mass produced, The current models look exactly the same as the originals. They remain unupholstered, in keeping with the Eameses requirement that materials be expressed honestly and unselfconsciously. In fact, these were the first one-piece plastic chairs to be left uncovered At the same time, the chairs are better than ever. For example, the shell is now manufactured using more environmentally friendly, high-impact plastic

Herman Miller ® Eames DAR - Molded Plastic Arm Chair with Wire Base


A classic.

 from Voorheesville, NY– Verified Buyer

You can't go wrong with classic mid century modern. We are using this for an office chair. The office also doubles as a reading area and this works great. We slung a sheepskin over it, and it is quite cozy for reading or working.

 from Manhattan Beach, CA– Verified Buyer

I bought 2 chairs to compliment our dining room, but they also go with our game table and can be brought out on the patio when a couple of extra chairs are needed. They are light weight enough to move easily, but sturdy enough for a large adult. The Eames customer service is amazing, when I needed to replace one of the felt footpads I gave the the number off the bottom of the chair and it was Fed Ex-ed, they already had all my information.
