DAR Chair - Replica

The Charles E. DAR Armchair boasts a stylish organic shell, which is moulded to fit the contours of the body. Although this triumph of design was created over 60 years ago for the "Low Cost Furniture Design" Competition at the New York Museum of Modern Art, the forward-thinking design is perfectly at home with modern décor. Reminiscent of the Eiffel Tower’s construction, the designer’s innovative technique of a bent and welded wire base offers maximum stability. The comfortable seat pocket has a waterfall edge, which reduces the pressure on the back of the thighs.

We produce this timeless design with the seat available in high quality plastic or fibreglass in a variety of bright colours. It is supported by reliable steel rods, adding a great detail feature to contrast with the chair’s simple, organic design.

About the Designer

Charles Eames

Charles Eames

Considered as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century, Charles E. was born in St Louis, Missouri. Perhaps decorated as the finest American designer of his generation, Charles E. was heavily influenced by his uncle’s workings, the great architect William S. Eames.

Despite a healthy education studying architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, Eames best began to put his ideas into motion whilst working as a labourer at the Laclede Steel Company in the town of his birth. Here, he received first-hand knowledge and experience in engineering, drawing and architecture, learning the moulding and treatment techniques he would later become famous for.

Both Charles E. and his wife Ray are still heavily celebrated on an international scale, especially for their work in the field of modern furniture. Both collaborated on numerous projects, earning them the AIA Twenty-five Year Award in 1977 and the prestigious Royal Gold Medal Award in 1979, a year after Charles passed away. Their work is still showcased at MoMA in New York, whilst in 1985 IDSA accredited Eames as "The Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century".
