Product Story

Epitomising the playful, functionality of mid-century American design, the DAX Chair by Charles and Ray Eames feels as fresh today as when it was first introduced over 60 years ago. A design to suit every home, this colourful, plastic moulded armchair is available in a range of tones that rest on slender tubular chrome legs.

The Eames Plastic Chairs are renewed versions of the legendary Fiberglass Chair. As the very first industrially produced plastic chair, it was originally developed by the Eameses in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the 'Low-Cost Furniture Design' competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art.

In the current versions made of polypropylene, these chairs provide even greater comfort, and make a wonderful addition to any home or workspace – whether it’s for use in the lounge, dining room, or office.

  • Based on the original 1950 design by Charles and Ray Eames

  • Iconic mid-century style available in multiple combinations

  • Modern construction made from environmentally friendly materials

  • The organic seat, or “shell” as it’s often referred to, has a curvaceous, organic form that allows for a comfortable sit while still providing firm posture support.
