The Eames Plastic Chairs are renewed versions of the legendary Fiberglass Chair. As the very first industrially produced plastic chair, it was originally developed by the Eameses in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the 'Low-Cost Furniture Design' competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art. In the current versions made of polypropylene, these chairs provide even greater comfort.
The wide selection of bases makes it possible to use the chairs in a variety of settings: from the dining room or home office to the garden. Different colours and upholstery versions provide many options for combining individual chairs to meet various needs.
In 2015, Vitra adapted the seat geometry and height of the Eames Plastic Chairs to today's requirements and also expanded the selection of colours with six new shades.
The Eames Plastic Armchair is complemented by the Eames Plastic Side Chair without armrests.
Dining at home – or eating out
With their new seat height, the Eames Plastic Chairs are even better suited for use in combination with contemporary dining tables. At home as well as in restaurants and cafeterias, the many configuration options make it possible to find just the right chair for any furnishing scheme or interior environment.
Versions of the Eames Plastic Chair with non-upholstered seat shells and powdercoated bases are also suited for use in outdoor settings. They not only provide a striking visual accent on terraces and balconies but also make it possible to enjoy the chair’s exceptional comfort under the open sky.
Base: four-legged tubular steel base, chromeplated or powder-coated in basic dark. The powder-coated version is suitable for outdoor use. (DAX = Dining Height Armchair X-Base)
