The classic Eames side chair shell cuts just as good a figure as an office chair as a dining chair. Designed in the 1950s as part of a series that revolutionised the design world, today Vitra produces and sells the Eames PSCC in a wide range of colours which offer a stylish, functional and very contemporary seating option for any office or home office. In close cooperation with the Eames Office, Vitra developed and launched a colour update in 2019, an adaptation which allows the the Eames Plastic Chairs to shine in a world of new shades and combinations.

How much weight can the Eames Plastic Chairs support?

The Vitra Eames Plastic Chairs are tested to 110 kg and so meet the "GS" test standard. Just as important as the weight however are the users sitting habits. Swinging on the hind legs, for example, caused a very high load which can dramatically shorten the life.

Can one add cushions to an unupholstered chair?

The Hopsak seat cushions are bolted to the seat shell. Separate seat cushions for the Eames Side Chairs and Armchairs can be ordered from Vitra; however, special tools are required for the retrofit of the seat cushion. As an alternatively we can offer felt seat cushions from Park House in different colours and with different levels of padding.

How is the seat height measured?

The seat height is determined according to the European standard EN 1335-1. This states that the chair be clamped in a special tester and loaded with a weight. The dimensions are then determined in the loaded state. The seat height being measured at a position defined by the standard and when in the load bearing state. The stated seat height cannot be measured with a conventional measuring device, rather is a normalised comparison value so that different chairs (for example, with and without height adjustment, or with varying thickness of seat cushion, etc.) can be compared with one another.

How do I recognise an original Eames Plastic Chair?

On the underside of the seat shell, the material marking PP indicates the polypropylene used for the shell, a seal certifies the safety of the chair and a sticker indicates the place of manufacture and serial number. In addition, Vitra always supplies the original fully assembled.

Why a 2019 colour update?

The new colour palette allows for more possible combinations and offers a broader spectrum of different colour shades with the delineation into "Natural Tones", "Mid Tones" and "Bright Tones".
