Charles and Ray Eames designed the DAW armchair in 1950 as part of a plastic chair collection. Produced by Vitra the Eames plastic chairs are the first serially produced plastic chairs in furniture history and are today available with various seats and frames, making them both multi-functional and multi-purpose. 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.
