Eames Fiberglass DSR, 1950

Eames fiberglass DSR armchair by Charles & Ray Eames for Vitra.

Buy a set of six Vitra dining chairs between 1st November 2020 and 31st January 2021 and receive the sixth chair as a gift.*

In 1948, Charles and Ray Eames won the second prize when participating in the 'International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design' held by the New York Museum of Modern Art. Their chair design featured a shell seat moulded to the contours of the body in metal with a concept for a variety of accompanying bases.

Due to the complexity and high cost of mass production, they sought to find an alternative for the metal, eventually discovering glass-fibre reinforced polyester resin. Primarily used for military application, the Eameses recognised the qualities of the material: mouldability, strength and suitability to industrial manufacturing processes.

The first to use the material for furniture design, the tactile quality of the fibreglass enhanced the organic, moulded form of the chair to provide optimal comfort.

The Eames DSR Chair is also available with a plastic shell seat.

Herman Miller has the sole license for the Charles and Ray Eames collection in the U.S. and the Far East. Therefore the export of these products from the UK to the U.S. is not possible. For more information please contact Herman Miller.
