Moulded to fit the contours of the human body, the DSW is comfortable, practical and versatile. It is ideal for any room in your home; as a dining chair to enjoy with friends and family or as an occasional chair in a bedroom or living room. As the first industrially-manufactured plastic chair, the DSW was originally produced in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the Museum of Modern Art’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition but has grown to become known as a world-renowned modern design icon.
This chair is part of the Eames Shell Chair Collection.
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”.
