This Eames DAR Armchair Reproduction Features:
- High grade stainless steel base
- The body of the chair is formed in a single mold with quality polypropylene
Husband and wife duo Charles and Ray Eames were at the forefront of furniture innovation for the mid-century modern vision. In particular, their use of never-before-seen materials and techniques shocked the world into a new appreciation of what furniture could be. For instance, the Eames DAR Armchair – DAR standing for dining height, armchair shell, rod base – was the first industrially manufactured plastic chair.
The manipulated, welded Eiffel base and the organically shaped polypropylene plastic shell were completely new structural forms in the industry. More than 50 years later, these once-innovative features are now timeless and iconic. This realisation of the design includes the high, flexible back, deep seat and waterfall edge of the original, making the chair also incredibly comfortable.
The Eames Inspired DAR Armchair is available in a range of colors. Along with its clean simple form, it is an ideal piece of contemporary lounge room furniture, and equally suited to a stylish office or chic cafe.
Eames, Charles and Ray
Charles Eames, an American architect and designer was greatly influenced by the Finnish architect Eliel Saarinen. Eliel’s son Eero (creator of the Ball Chair) would later become a partner and friend of Charles. In 1941, Charles married Ray Kaiser also an American artist, designer, and filmmaker who, together with her husband Charles, is responsible for many classic, iconic designs of the 20th century. Their work displayed the new technique of molded plywood products, including the 1945 DCW (Dining Chair Wood) and DCM (Dining Chair Metal with plywood seat) and the plywood Eames Lounge Chair 1956. From the beginning, the Eames furniture has usually been listed as by Charles Eames. In fact in the 1948 and 1952 Herman Miller bound catalogs, only Charles’ name is listed, but it has become clear that Ray was deeply involved and should be considered at minimum an equal partner in bringing the classic furniture pieces to life.
