DAX Chair - Replica

The DAX Chair (Dining height Armchair X-base) is a design statement of elegance and functionality. The charming piece embodies an organic form, which contributes to the natural appeal of the chair. As a result of the innovative moulding technique, the seating offers great comfort and its smooth edge reduces pressure on the back of the arms and legs. The lightness of the design makes it an ideal piece in any contemporary interior, where it will integrate with other furniture of the surrounding area. The DAX armchairs were first presented at the Low Cost Furniture Design competition at the New York Museum of Modern Art.

We produce the shell of this classic piece in a choice of quality fibreglass or plastic. Both come in a selection of vibrant colours to adhere to your individual taste. The simple stainless steel legs complete the uncluttered 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".
