The Vitra DRS chair has a simple and beautiful organic design, this chair has become an example for many designers for a chair with a fixed seat shell and a variable base. This armless variant in maple is available in 14 colors. The chair comes standard with a black felt glider for the hard floor.
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, the plastic Eames chairs are true design icons of the 1950s. Their popularity lies in the timeless, ergonomic design and the different leg options. The original model with a fiberglass seat was the first industrially produced plastic chair.
As the average body height has increased over the past 60 years, Vitra decided in 2016 to increase the seat height by 2 centimeters. In addition, the backrest has been moved forward by 2 degrees, so that the position again perfectly matches the dining table of this time. The dimensions are: Depth / Length 55 - Height 83 - Width 46.5 cm.
The seat height is 43 cm.
A design by Charles & Ray Eames from 1948.
About the designers:
In 1957, Vitra signed a licensing agreement with Herman Miller and the company began producing the Eames duo's designs for Europe and the Middle East. Charles and Ray Eames have deeply influenced Vitra and continue to do so today. It was the encounter with their work that heralded the company's beginnings as a furniture manufacturer. But not only the products of Charles and Ray Eames have left their mark on Vitra. Their design philosophy makes a significant contribution to the company's values, orientation and objectives even today.
The magnitude of this influence is most clearly expressed in the question that is always asked at Vitra when major design decisions are made: What would Charles and Ray say? During their life together, the couple provided answers to that question during their travels to Europe and repeated visits to California. Since the deaths of Charles (1978) and Ray (1988), Vitra has remained in close contact with the Eames family, who now manage the Eames Office, regarding all issues related to the conservation, further development and production of Eames designs. . As the only authorized manufacturer of their products for Europe and the Middle East, Vitra offers you the assurance that you own an original Eames product.
