VITRA EAMES PLASTIC CHAIR DSW - MAPLE WOOD.
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 and a variable base. This version without arm and with so-called "Eiffel frame" in maple is available in 14 colors. The chair is supplied as standard with a black felt glider for the hard floor.
Since 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 is brought forward by 2 degrees, so that the posture perfectly matches the modern dining table. Finally, the seat tubs are now also available in 6 additional colors, which have been selected by Hella Jongerius.
The dimensions are: Depth / Length 55 - Height 83 - Width 46.5cm.
The seat height is 43 cm.
A design by Charles & Ray Eames from 1948.
About the designers:
In 1957, Vitra signed a license agreement with Herman Miller and the company began producing the designs of the Eames duo for Europe and the Middle East. Charles and Ray Eames have strongly influenced Vitra and continue to do so today. It was the encounter with their work that heralded the start of the company as a furniture manufacturer. But not only the products of Charles and Ray Eames have left their mark on Vitra. Their design philosophy makes an important contribution to the values, orientation and objectives of the company even today.
The magnitude of this influence is most clearly expressed in the question that Vitra always asks when important design decisions are made: What would Charles and Ray say? During their lives together, the couple answered that question during their travels to Europe and repeated visits to California. Since the death of Charles (1978) and Ray (1988), Vitra has remained in close contact with the Eames family, who now manages the Eames Office, on all issues related to the preservation, 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 certainty that you own an original Eames product.
