Before the development of the DKW Charles and Ray Eames experimented with moulded plywood and aluminium, before in 1950 they realised their first plastic chairs featuring a seat shell made of pressed fibre glass. Just one year later the Eames' varied the organic shape of the seats and created the Wire Chair collection, in which the seat and backrest is made of one piece from a system of bent and welded steel wire. This construction principle gives the chair, whether with or without a cushion, a light transparency and an expression of extreme technicality.
