Wire Chair LKR

Charles & Ray Eames, 1951

Charles and Ray Eames used several variants of the small LKR chair – including the LSR version with a plastic shell – in the Eames House, their legendary home in Pacific Palisades. Like all other Wire Chairs, the LKR is available without upholstery, with a seat cushion or with a two-piece seat and back cushion known as the 'Bikini' pad due to its shape. In the model without upholstery, it is also suited for outdoor use.

New colours

The Wire Chair LKR is available in four new colours based on the palette designed by Charles and Ray Eames. Vitra has developed the fresh colours citron, sky blue, dark green and Eames Sea Foam Green.

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 shell can be joined with a variety of different bases. The Wire Chair is available 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.
