Eames Plastic Chair: Create your own design icon and get a free Vitra tote bag

August 25, 2017

"Getting the most of the best to the greatest number of people for the least": This is how Charles and Ray Eames described one of their main aims as furniture designers. The Eames Plastic Chairs are among the products that come very close to achieving this goal. 

 

The Plastic chair collection, launched in 1950, introduced a new furniture typology, which has since become widespread in the industry: the multifunctional Eames Plastic chair offers a variety of base options, as well as shell and upholstery colours.

 

Initially made of polyester reinforced with fibreglass, the Plastic chair offered a high level of comfort, both as a dining and office chair. Vitra discontinued the fibreglass models in 1993 for ecological reasons, and nowadays the original Eames Plastic Chairs from Vitra come with polypropylene shells, which are more environmentally friendly. 

 

Today you can specify the most optimal combination for your perfect chair, so it can be used in a dining room, home office, or sitting room, depending on your needs. And the best thing is that your Eames Plastic chair won't go out of fashion any time soon, because the chairs from the Eames collection are true design icons, and as such, they have acquired timeless aesthetic value.

 

With two types of shell (side chair or armchair), over 5 types of base, 14 shell colours, and 28 upholstery colours (for a seat-only or full inner shell upholstery), the combinations available for the Eames Plastic Chairs are virtually endless. To highlight this abundance of choice, Vitra are introducing an updated version of their product configurator, which helps you specify your very own personal Eames Plastic Chair design and check how it will look before you order. 

 

How does the campaign work?

  • Enter the world of the Eames Plastic Chair at your favourite dealer (our showroom is very conveniently located near London Waterloo! ;))
  • Choose the colour, seat shell, base and upholstery for your perfect chair
  • Enjoy your original Eames Plastic Chair in your home
  • Get a free Vitra tote bag as a complimentary gift with each purchase of an Eames Plastic Chair (free gift available while stocks last, one bag per customer)

Did you know that the names of the different Eames Plastic chairs can provide some clues about the base and shell type? 

 

DSR = Dining height Side chair, Rod base

DSW = Dining height Side chair, Wooden base

DAX = Dining height Armchair, X-base

DAL = Dining height Armchair, La Fonda base

PSCC = Pivot Side chair, Cast base on Castors

 

 

Not sure where to start? Just play around with the Vitra Configurator, or search for the hashtag #VitraOriginal on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to get inspired by other users' configurations and how they look in situ in their homes. Or why don't you pop into our London showroom, and we would be happy to help you with your choice and provide you with advice and inspiration.

Save up to 25% on Saarinen side chairs and armchairs

May 10, 2017

 

Following a successful run in Spring 2017, Knoll have now relaunched their Saarinen chair promotion to include more fabric finishes and even more generous discounts. You can now get up to 25% off these iconic midcentury chairs. The promotion covers Tulip side chairs and armchairs with seat upholstery in fabric categories G, C or S - including fabrics such as Knoll West, Kvadrat Tonus, Knoll Felt, Kvadrat Hallingdal, Kvadrat Divina, as well as the new Studiotex fabric collections Eva and Opera. The offer is valid when you purchase four or more chairs, and it includes all variations of the Saarinen chairs: with white or black shell and base, and with swivel or fixed seat.

 

The promotion runs until 31 October 2017 only at participating stores. Get in touch with us for a quote or browse the full Saarinen collection on our website. We have shown a small selection of all the available fabric and leather options, so if you can't find the colour you are looking for, just let us know and we'll forward you the full list. 


Buy the Egg and get a free matching footstool

April 01, 2017

We have some great news for the fans of Arne Jacobsen furniture - you can now get the famous Egg chair with a free matching footstool, upholstered in fabric or leather. The offer relates to any Egg chair purchased between 1 April and 31 August 2017 in any fabric or leather finish. Just add the Egg to your shopping basket, and we will confirm your order to include a free matching stool.

 

One of the icons of midcentury design, the Egg chair was designed by Arne Jacobsen in 1958 for the SAS Royal Hotel (now Radisson) in Copenhagen. The Egg is a great statement piece on its own, but the footstool does add a significant level of comfort and complements the chair.

 

Browse our suggested fabric or leather finishes, or if you cannot find the colour you want, get in touch with us and we will do our best to source it for you. Please note that the fabric and leather swatches shown on our website are just a small part of all the available options.
