This item is a one-off clearance item to be sold on a first order, first served basis.

In 1948, Charles and Ray Eames won 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 DSR side chair pairs a fibreglass shell seat with a welded steel wire 'Eiffel tower' base.

The seat is available in the original Red-orange colour with dark powder-coated smooth finish base. 

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