Ray and Charles Eames, arguably the most successful American designer couple, continually experimented with new materials and manufacturing processes in order to realise their innovative, often completely new designs. One of their major achievements was the development of the organically shaped one-piece plastic shell of the so-called Plastic Chairs collection; a design which in terms of production processes, aesthetics and flexibility set new standards. With the DKX and other Wire Chairs the Eames' took this form, and reproduced it in a completely new, and at that time unfamiliar material for furniture design - industrial steel wire. This simple, yet ingenious idea gives the Vitra DKX a very special character and also neatly demonstrates how conceptually the Eames went about their work. Especially in the chrome finish of the Eames DKX with its simple four-legged base one can appreciate the permeability and transparency. The optional cushioning provides in addition not only for comfort but also a special and elegant contrast. A particular note is bequeathed by the one-piece seat and back padding, which with its characteristic form is responsible for the Vitra chair's nickname: the "bikini".
