The grid-like structure of the seat and backing sees the Eames's at their most maximalist, which is in turn balanced by the simple legs, with the resulting piece being one that is both timeless and pleasing. It's no surprise that the DKX collection, which includes an upholstered version, has remained in production for nigh on seventy years, with the design often mimicked but never bettered. Crafted from steel wire and powder-coated to finish, the Vitra DKX Eames Chair is a durable and long-lasting piece of forever furniture. The Vitra Eames DKX-5 Eames Wire Chair is part of the Vitra Eames Wire family of chairs.
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”.
