Wire Chair

Charles & Ray Eames, 1951

  • Designed by Charles and Ray Eames out of welded steel wire, the Wire Chair is a variation on the theme of the organically shaped one-piece seat shell, combining transparent lightness with technological sophistication. The seat shell can be joined with a variety of different bases. The Wire Chair is available without upholstery, with a seat cushion or with seat and back cushions. Due to its shape, the two-piece cushion is also known as the 'Bikini' pad.

    The Wire Chairs are available with a powder-coated finish or, depending on the model, in a chrome-plated version. DKR and DKX models with a powder-coated finish are also ideally suited for outdoor use.
