Wire Chair DKW

Charles & Ray Eames, 1951

The Wire Chairs by Charles and Ray Eames owe their transparent look to the spot-welded steel wire shell, while the wooden base of the DKW (Dining Chair K-Wire Wood Base) lends a warm and casual contrast to the essentially technical appearance of the chair. The metal components of the DKW chair have a black powder-coated finish; the wooden legs of the base come in various shades of maple.
