The shape and form upon which the DKW chair is based is a design classic, an instantly recognisable piece available here with a luxurious leather seat and back cushion. Crossed welded steel wires exude an industrial aesthetic, constrasting perfectly with the stunning solid black maple legs, adding a robust yet subtle touch to a chair that is built to last decades.
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”.
