The defining feature of the Vitra Eames DSR is its filigree Eiffel frame - named after the Parisian landmark which it so poetically resembles. Ray and Charles Eames' design was conceived as a series and today is employed in a variety of seating and household objects. 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.

FAQ

?
Should the answers to your questions not be found here, our service team can be contacted Mon-Fri, 8 am to 6 pm via +49 341 2222 88 22.

How much weight can a Vitra Eames DSR support?

The Eames DSR meets the "GS" test standards and is tested up to 110kg.
The way in which the chair is used is also important. Swinging, for
example, causes a higher strain which can reduce the chairs lifetime.

Can upholstery be added to an unupholstered seat shell?

The Hopsack seat cushion is fixed to the seat shell with screws. For both the Eames side chair and Eames armchairs seat cushions can be ordered from Vitra, attaching this does however require special tools and is a job fro specially trained technicians. As an alternative (smow) offer cushions from Parkhaus which have been specially created to fit the Eames plastic chair series.

Why is there a new seat height?

Since Charles and Ray Eames designed the chairs the average height of the population has grown by around 10 cm. Therefore, in addition to adjusting the height of the Eames Lounge Chair in 2015, Vitra also adapted the Plastic Chairs (DSW/DAW, DSR/DAR, DSX/DAX) to better meet current user needs. The bases of the chairs are consequently now on average 2 cm higher. The change is minimal and accordingly can only be seen in direct comparison. Bases of the original height (41 cm) are still available as spare parts on request.

Can the Vitra Eames DSR be used outdoors?

Only the Vitra Eames DSR with the powder coated base can be used outdoors; special additives in the polypropylene slowing down the fading process. Despite that Vitra recommend not to leave the chairs in the sun for longer than necessary. Felt pads are not suitable for outdoor use, for outdoor use the plastic glides should always be used. Upholstered versions are not suitable for outdoor use.

How is the seat height measured?

The seat height is determined according to the European standard EN 1335-1
