Eames Plastic Chairs
Already since the late 1930s, Charles Eames had in mind to create a shell chair that can be produced industrially.
Finally, in 1948, Charles & Ray Eames designed the Eames Plastic Side Chair DSW for the "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition.
Its innovative form was so well received that he took second place and went into series production two years later. True to the motto "The best of the greatest number of people for the least", the designer couple created a chair that was affordable and yet set new accents with its innovative design and today's furniture design is indispensable. This is how the series of Eames Plastic Chairs, which includes the DSW, was founded.
