Designed by Charles and Ray Eames out of welded steel wire with a chrome finish, 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. In addition, the Wire Chair is available without upholstery, with a seat pad or with a two-piece seat and back pad. Due to the shape of the latter, this is also known as the 'Bikini' pad.
Now the Wire Chair is available with a dark powder coating. This emphasises the transparency of the seat shell and fives the chair a homely touch. DKW, another new model with a wooden base, amplifies this homely touch even further. For the maple base, various wood shades are available.
Backrest and seat: Shaped and welded, chromed or powder coated
Base: Four legged base with cross struts (DKR); wooden base (DKW)
