One design, many interpretations: The Vitra DAX combines the seat shell of the Eames armchair family with a classic four-legged base: just one realisation of the seating design concept developed by Charles and Ray Eames in the 1950s. With its relatively simple appearance the DAX is the undisputed convenient all-rounder among the Eames plastic chairs. 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.
