Charles Eames DAR Chair

DAR Chair by Charles and Ray Eames 1950 – 1953

Classic Designer Chair Profile

The DAR Chair (DAR Dining Armchair Rod) is part of the Plastic Shell Group if chairs designed by the Eameses, from their ideas and prototypes by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen conceived for the Museum of Modern Art’s “Organic Design in Home Furnishings” competition in 1940.

This chair is made of molded fibre glass reinforced polyester to form the seat and shell and then fixed to a metal rod base with rubber shock mounts.

The feet are adjustable and level out any uneven surfaces. It can be used as a dining chair or for commercial applications. The chair is very comfortable and able to be sat in for long periods of time, the look is timeless and it is still in production today.

Some designs just never grow old and this chair is no exception, it still looks good in contemporary interiors today.
