DSR Chair - Replica

Known as the Eiffel Chair, the DSR (Dining height Side chair Rod base) is one of Charles E.’s most popular classic designs, characterised by its smooth lines, contrasted with the detailed rod design of the legs. The DSR was created in 1948 and it was the first industrially manufactured plastic chair. The piece comprises an organically shaped bowl seat supported by a welded wire base - a recognisable feature of E.’s work. The high-back structure provides seating comfort as well as an elegant visual profile.

We produce the DSR Chair in either fiberglass or plastic in a variety of vibrant colours. The four legs are constructed of chrome-plated wires. The chairs are not stackable.

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".
