1961 – Present

The Eames Plastic Chairs are a renewed version of the legendary Eames Fiberglass Chairs. The fiberglass seating, developed for the Low-Cost Furniture Design competition organized by the Museum of Modern Art, was the very first industrially produced chair made from that material.

This version is made of polypropylene and is 100% recyclable. With its integrated armrests, the organically shaped shell of the Plastic Armchair offers superb comfort.Shells come in a broad range of colors and upholstery so that you can mix and match components and find the perfect design for your individual needs.

The DAL base was developed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1961 and first introduced to the public at Alexander Girard’s restaurant, La Fonda Del Sol, in New York City.

The base is suitable for contract installations and marks an evolutionary advance over the previous Eames contract base, in that it is made entirely of two cast aluminum parts joined by fasteners. The original Eames contract base was made of three parts, a cast aluminum spider, a steel tube, and cast aluminum blades.

It is available exclusively from Vitra.
