Vitra DAR Plastic Armchair
The Vitra DAR Plastic Armchair is an iconic design from Charles and Ray Eames.
This is Vitra’s re-edition of the now legendary Eames DAR Armchair with its ‘Eiffel Tower’ leg base. The seat design was first presented as part of a New York Museum of Modern Art competition entitled “Low Cost Furniture Design”. Their organically shaped plastic seat shells were combined with several base options.
The DAR stands for Dining Height Armchair with a wire base. Thanks to advances in technology and materials the new edition is now made in polypropylene (the original DAR chair was made in fibreglass) which offers greater seat comfort.
The Vitra DAR Plastic Armchair has now been launched in an extended collection featuring a new basic dark powder-coated base (suitable for outdoor use), along with new shell colours, creating a large and comprehensive collection. Also available with full front upholstery or seat upholstery.
A variation of this product is currently on display in our Manchester showroom – White shell with Chrome base (no upholstery).
We also have samples of other finishes available to see. Call us with any questions or come over to see it for yourself. #ondisplay
