Old and new materials in harmony.
The DSW's iconic injection moulded ABS seat is mounted onto black wooden dowel legs with a high grade lacquered steel frame. Faithful to the original design.
The DSW is a variation on the classic Eames DAR – the world’s first plastic, mass-produced chair designed for a 1948 competition to create low cost furniture. Nicknamed the “Eiffel” because of the resemblance of its metal frame to the Paris landmark, it made joyous and innovative use of bright, bold plastics. However, the DSW departs from the original design by substituting wood for key elements of the original all-steel frame, creating a unique mix of traditional and modern materials. Like other DAR-derived chairs, the result is a piece that that you can use comfortably for hours at a time, whether as an occasional chair or as hardwearing, everyday seating in your home or office. Shown here with a dark grey seat top. Available in a variety of colours.
