Charles Eames DAR Chair

The iconic moulded plastic design of the Charles Eames DAR Chair is instantly recognizable. From its moulded shell with integrated arms to its Eiffel tower-style legs, our STIN furniture version of the Eames DAR Chair is a perfect representation of the original. The shell of the Eames DAR Chair is sculpted to the contours of the body and comes in glossy fibreglass or matt plastic, in a choice of six colours. The legs are constructed from polished stainless steel. Like the original, our plastic version displays round markings on the seat. This is a natural result of the legs meeting the material.

The story behind the Charles Eames DAR chair

Created in 1948, the Charles Eames DAR Chair forms part of a series of moulded plastic chairs designed by the husband and wife team, Charles and Ray Eames. These chairs have the iconic status of being the first industrially manufactured plastic chairs. Each one has the same ergonomically designed seat combined with different bases and arm styles. They are identified by their initials – for example, DAR stands for Dining chair, Armchair with a Rod base. The Charles Eames DAR Chair was made for everyday living. With its deep seat, high back, curved arms and waterfall seat edge; the chairs hug the body making them as comfortable as they are practical. These chairs quickly became bestsellers around the world, and remain as popular to this day.

Charles Eames

Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States)

Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple’s most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
