Eames Wire Chair by Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames


Eames Wire Chair At A Glance:
First introduced in 1951, the Eames Wire Chair was an immediate hit. Distinctively, unmistakably Eames, this chrome metal chair has stood the test of time and is as popular today as it was half a century ago. The airy silhouette of this seat is made of cross-woven wires and positioned on a bent-wire, welded "Eiffel Tower" base. The Wire Chair adds artistic interest - and functional seating - to residences and workplaces alike.

What's To Like:
For style, the Wire Chair gets an "A" - it's got a beautifully exposed structure. Cross-woven wires and a bent-wire welded base make the Eames wire chair strong and lightweight, and the optional leather seat pad gives you more comfort for your posterior.

What's Not to Like:
The leather pad goes a long way towards making the Wire Chair a comfortable seat, but it still won't be a comfortable long-term (read: 1 hour) seat. You'll get a sore bum if you stay put for long.

The Bottom Line:
A prime example of the Eameses use of welded wire, the Wire Chair is small, light, and has a beautifully crafted Eiffel Tower base for added character. All that remains is for your to choose whether or not you want a seat pad, and what color you'd like.

Details:

  • Overall: 32.75" h x 19" w x 21.25" d
  • Seat height: 16.5"
  • Chrome frame with optional leather seat pad
  • Elegantly crafted Eiffel Tower base
  • Standard glides can be ordered with felt bottoms to protect bare floors; both styles tilt slightly to help with leveling


Leather Options:

  • Stock Leather
    Chromium free and from Austria this stock Herman Miller leather is a winner for most. With a matte, soft feel this is the most popular leather used on Herman Miller upholstered items.
  • Open Line Leather
    Austrian by birth, yours by choice. Open Line leather is closest to the stock Herman Miller leathers but available in a wider array of colors.

The Herman Miller Eames Wire Chair is also known by the following manufacturer Item Numbers: DKR.0, DKR.2, DKR.5.

Designer

Charles and Ray EamesCharles and Ray Eames
Charles and Ray Eames are perhaps the most celebrated designers of the 20th century. Married in 1941, the Eames duo are responsible for some of the most critically acclaimed furniture designs of the modern era. Amongst their most famous designs are the molded plastic chair group, the aluminum chair group, and the Eames Wire Chair. Although they are most often remembered today for their furniture designs with partner Herman Miller, the Eameses engaged in artistic expression across a broad range of mediums- including architecture and filmmaking.

Design Story

In the early 1950s, the Eames office investigated bent and welded wire as the basis for furniture. Inspired by trays, dress forms, and baskets, the office developed a variety of pieces, including Eames wire chairs.

They made the rim of the chair a lighter-gauge wire and doubled it for stability to achieve strength requirements, an organic shape, and cost restraints. This advance won them the first American mechanical patent for design.

The chair was marketed by Herman Miller until 1967 and reintroduced in 2001.

      A:

      The manufacture does not suggest using this chair outside. It should be used indoors only - a sunroom, bedroom, or playroom would be great!
