The Eames's fiberglass chairs are the subject of interior design legend, and amongst the most iconic of all seating. Heritage is key here: some 70 years on from its original production the chairs are still made to the same exacting standards, with Vitra acting as caretakers for one of the most beloved pieces of interior furniture of all. The Vitra DAW Eames Fiberglass Armchair - Dark Maple Base is a particularly enchanting configration, with its lavish base offering a fresh touch to the ubiquitous seat.
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”.
