Eames DKW wire chair by Charles & Ray Eames for Vitra.

The Eames Wire Chair is a variation on the organically shaped one-piece seat shell, boasting a light transparency and high technicality.

The chairs are available without upholstery, or with a single seat cushion or a seat and backrest cushion. Because of its shape, this upholstery is sometimes referred to as a "bikini".

Seat shell is made of bent and welded steel wire, powder-coated in the colour Basic Dark. 

Four-legged non-stacking base in solid maple with stained finish (golden, black or dark), steel rod cross struts.  Fitted with plastic glides for carpet or felt glides for hard floors.

Optional seat/back cushions available in the following fabrics and leathers from the Vitra collection: Hopsak, Leather and Leather Premium. See product downloads sheet for details and swatches.

In addition, the seat and back cushion are available in Vitra Checker fabric. See image above for swatch. Please note that this upholstery option is only available for the combined seat and back cushion, not for seat cushion alone.

49w x 51d x 43/85cmh
