Product Description

The Eames DAR chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950. Charles and Ray Eames developed their Plastic Armchairs in the 1950s, and these furnishings have become icons of American mid-century modernism. In particular, the DAR chair, which stands for Dining height Arm Chair,  stands out as an inimitable classic design combining light, elegant forms with structural strength in the intricate steel wire construction of its 'Eiffel Tower' base.

This is considered as one of the most iconic plastic armchairs in history and is often referred to instead as the Eiffel chair due to its base design. When the chair was originally designed in 1950, it was part of a series of different chairs from the Eames Office with the same chair shell featured on different interchangeable bases. This created a chair for all kinds of purposes and was hugely popular. 

The original DAR Chair from the 1950s production is very sought after and often seen as a collector’s piece, with sale prices often over £1000. However, the chair has been in reproduction since 2001 and continues to be a feature in homes due to its timeless design. If you are looking for an original 1st gen DAR Chair, you should check to see if the feet and colour of the chair are original, as these changed with reproduction.

Seat shell: dyed-through polypropylene.

Base: wire base with cross struts, chrome-plated
