Wire Chair
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, pairing transparent lightness with technological sophistication. The wire shell can be joined with a variety of different bases and is offered without upholstery, with a seat cushion, or with a two-piece seat and back cushion known as the ‘Bikini’ pad due to its shape. The Wire Chairs have a powder-coated finish; some models are also available in a chrome-plated version. DKR and DKX models with a powder-coated finish are suited for both indoor and outdoor use. In 2016, Vitra added roughly 20 mm to the base height of the Wire Chairs while adapting the seat geometry accordingly. These revisions, which are aesthetically almost imperceptible, increase the comfort of this classic chair design, especially in combination with contemporary tables.
