Originally designed in 1945 by design duo Charles & Ray Eames, this classic, minimalist chair will instantly add a contemporary elegance to your dining room. This dining chair is also perfect for public canteens and schools. Available in a variety of colours & wood types, including oak and walnut.
What begun as an experiment in their apartment in 1945 created Charles and Ray Eames' much loved and most sought-after dining chair. The chair was created by pressing thin sheets of wood together against a heated membrane that was powered by a bicycle pump. Truly innovative and expertly crafted, the DCM, which stands for Dining Chair with Metal legs, sits you comfortably thanks to its ergonomically impressive design.
Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States)
Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple’s most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
