Product Story

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, combining transparent lightness with technological sophistication. The seat shell can be joined with a variety of different bases. The Wire Chair is available with a two-piece seat and back cushion known as the Bikini‘ pad due to its shape.
  • 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.
