Staying true to the timeless qualities of the original designs, Vitra have refreshed a number of their classics in new colours and sizes to suit all tastes.

The first of its kind

The original Eames chairs from the 1950s, including the DSR and DSW with Yellowish Maple Base, have graced countless homes, restaurants, lobbies, offices and hotels for decades gone by. The polypropylene seat shell of the chairs gained its recognition and popularity from the undeniable comfort that it provides and is moulded to fit the contours of the human body. These humble and familiar designs only make up a handful of many products that Charles & Ray Eames designed throughout their extensive career, as 2 of the most influential and established furniture designers of all time*.

A modern day refresh

Thanks to the timeless practicality and form of each design, such a signature chair collection will never require a dramatic transformation to suit the market of today. However, Vitra have made a couple of subtle adaptations to the original chair designs to suit the evolutionary needs of our growing generation.

The adapted Eames plastic chairs are now 2cm taller with a slightly-raised seat height, providing even greater seating comfort than before. The chairs are also now available in a more vibrant and contemporary mix of carefully-selected colours, from Classic Red and Classic Green to Navy Blue and Moss Grey.

If you fancy taking advantage of our current stock of the former editions at a lower price, then please visit our Clearance section (whilst stocks last). However, please note that these former editions do not have the adapted height.

The Black Collection

Just like in fashion, black is a staple choice that will forever be in style across the globe. This is due to the fact that black is highly versatile and timeless, evoking a sense of elegance, sophistication and power. The same can be applied to interior design, where black has always made a bold impression within people's homes and interiors.

The exclusive 'Black Collection' from Vitra revisits classic designs from the likes of Charles & Ray Eames and George Nelson in sultry shades of black, including the RAR Eames Plastic Armchair and Eames LTR Occasional Table Black Base.
