The DSR plastic chair was originally designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950. With the manufacturer Vitra, four further colour variants of the popular plastic chair will be introduced in 2023 as the DSR Duotone. With its so-called Eiffel Tower base, a filigree construction made of steel wire, the Vitra DSR Duotone Plastic Chair combines constructive stability and formal lightness for all lovers of good furniture.
Dimensions in mm
|Base: Steel wire with bracing
Seat shell: dyed-through polypropylene (white) or dyed-through RE plastic (all other colours)
The RE plastic employed for the Eames Plastic Chair seat shells is composed of granules of recycled plastics from the German "Yellow Sack" packaging recycling system and approx. 10% fibreglass material to achieve the necessary rigidity. The familiar colours of the seat shells do not change as a result of this material change. However, with the lighter seat shell colours tiny pigments of differently coloured granules may be visible upon closer inspection. These pigments do not represent a defect, but are a feature of the new sustainable material. Below is a comparative example of the colour "ice grey" in high magnification - the new material is on the right.
