Vitra’s striking 'Eames Plastic Side Chair "DSX"' from the design studio of Charles and Ray Eames is available in the by now legendary fibreglass.

An icon as a gift: Buy 6 EamesFiberglassChairs or EamesPlasticChairs and get an additional EamesPlasticArmchairLAR as a gift from us. During the promotional period from 01st November 2019 to 31st January 2020.


Since the late 1930's, Charles Eames had in mind to create a shell-like chair that would admit of being produced in a series. However, it was not until 1948 that, on the occasion of an exhibition by the Museum of Modern Art, this idea came to be implemented practically: eventually marketed as 'Plastic Side Chair' and 'Armchair', these chairs of fibreglass-reinforced polyester became bestsellers of the American furniture maker Herman Miller.


On the account of ecological reasons, the production of these chairs was discontinued in 1993. Meanwhile, however, Vitra has resumed the manufacture of these chairs, now using polypropylene as the base material, which - being recyclable - is far more environmentally friendly.

The Vitra 'Eames Plastic Side Chair "DSX"' of fiberglass, from the design studio of Charles and Ray Eames, not only was the first example of its kind, but it is even now still the hit for all fashion-minded lovers of designer furniture.

In addition a 5 mm strong felt cushion by Hey Sign can be ordered.
The cushion comes with anti-skid coating. The warm felt provides a comfortable feeling.
