The Vitra Eames Plastic Side Chair DSR designed by Charles and Ray Eames can be used outside with the black frame finish.


Development: Since the late 1930's, Charles Eames had in mind to create a shell-like chair that would admit of being produced in a series. However, it was not until 1948 that, on the occasion of an exhibition by the Museum of Modern Art, this idea came to be implemented practically: the chairs made of fibreglass-reinforced polyester developed as Plastic Side Chair and Armchair as bestsellers of the American furniture maker Herman Miller. 

Ecology: On the account of ecological reasons, the production of these chairs was discontinued in 1993 - Vitra has resumed the manufacture of these chairs, now using polypropylene as the basic material, which - being recyclable - is far more environmentally friendly.

Frame: The Vitra Eames Plastic Side Chair DSR by Charles & Ray Eames comes with chrome frame and for outdoors black powdercoated.

The Vitra Eames Plastic Side Chair DSR designed by Charles & Ray Eames bring colour into your living room, terrace or office.

Choice of seating height: the new seating height of 43 cm was introduced in 2015. For reorders: All chairs bought before 2015 have a seating heat of 41,5 cm.

Our tipp!

In addition a 5 mm strong felt cushion by Hey Sign can be ordered.
The cushion comes with anti-skid coating. The warm felt provides a comfortable feeling.

For an even more elegant look we recommend the leather seat cushions by Bent Hansen.

The Vitra Eames Plastic Side Chair DSR can be used outdoors onyl with the powdercoated frame. The chrome frame is only for indoors.

Please note:

Suitable for outdoor use. Special additives slow down the bleach process throuhg UV radiation. The colour will eventually change when the
chair is exposed to the sun nontheless.


  • chrome-plated and black frame - black felt pads

Therefore you should not expose the chair to the sun longer than necessary.
