The use of polypropylene in creating furniture had not been attempted before innovative couple Ray and Charles Eames set their minds to it. Their novel creations became some of the most popular and critically acclaimed items of mid-century modern furniture. With one stroke, the duo had underlined the design decadence and technical shortcomings of the previous era.
The DSR Chair – the initialism standing for dining height, side chair shell, rod base – is a slight adaptation of the original Eames DAR Armchair. It has the same distinctive organically shaped polypropylene shell and Eiffel-tower inspired base, yet has a slightly simpler silhouette. This makes it ideal as a dining chair or side chair.
Ray and Charles Eames were particularly known for their desire for function – their furniture had to first be as comfortable and useful as possible. This delightful chair ideally complements the contours of the body, and will equally complement any living room, office, or commercial space.
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.
