Eiffel Wire Chair - Replica

The unique Eiffel Bikini Wire Chair, designed by Charles E., is a stand out piece, created in the beginning of the 1950s. The sculptured look of the design embodies a lightweight elegance with a strong and durable structure. The cross-woven wires of the back create an airy silhouette, marking the creative vision of the designer. The modern chair provides great seating comfort, supported by the stable Eiffel base - a recognisable characteristic of E.’s work.

The organic outline takes its shape from the DSR Chair and was moulded using groundbreaking technology. The design is completed by the intricate base, which resembles the construction of the Eiffel Tower. The finishing touch is a seat cushion and backrest made of classic leather in several colours.

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".
