The Vitra DAR Eames Fiberglass Armchair, a part of the iconic shell collection, has been in production since 1950, with Vitra further celebrating the rich heritage of the Eames by continuing to use the original colourways initially devised by the pair. It's a chair rich with history, and a real statement piece for any kitchen or home space, with the unique makeup of the fiberglass seat meaning that no two chairs are the same. The resulting piece is one of the most recognisable chairs of the 20th Century, and a piece which will continue to hold a special place in the hearts of design lovers everywhere.
American husband and wife design duo Charles and Ray Eames have had a profound influence on the visual character of American life, producing original work within the fields of architecture, furniture design, industrial design, manufacturing and the photographic arts.
The Eames’ first partnered with Vitra in 1957 to produce some of the most iconic pieces of furniture in the history of interior design. Today Vitra continues to reflect their philosophy on design and functionality, best understood through Charles’ own words: “Recognising the need is the primary condition for the design”.
