Designed in 1951, the Vitra Eames Wire Chair (DKR: Dining Knot-Wire Chair Rod-base) is a variation on the theme of the organically shaped one-piece seat shell, pairing transparent lightness with technological sophistication. 

Their intention was to design a light and durable chair using a minimal amount of materials. Inspired by the DSR chair, the first industrially produced plastic chair, they came up with an intelligent design solution which uses a wireframe grid and a classic Eames Eiffel base to create a functional and honest chair with a unique expression.

Despite being an all-metal chair it is very comfortable due to the carefully sculpted form. Impressive yet subtle this iconic chair is a great addition to a broad array of interior and exterior spaces. 

The wire shell can be joined with a variety of different bases and is offered without upholstery, with a removable seat cushion, or with a removable two piece seat and back cushion for the ultimate in comfort. DKR models with a powder-coated finish (not chrome) are suited for both indoor and outdoor use.
