Eames Wire Chair
Following the success of their Molded Plywood and Plastic chairs, Charles and Ray Eames began investigating bent and welded steel wire in 1951 as the basis for strong and lightweight furniture. The result was to become a classic of Mid-Century design: the Herman Miller® Eames® Wire chair.
The airy silhouette and highly sculptural look of the Wire chair was achieved with a seat of cross-woven wires set atop a bent-wire, welded base that reminded some viewers of the Eiffel tower. The use of wire makes the chair light and transparent, producing the impression of a 3D line drawing in space, and the chair's organic shape makes it a design statement and comfortable fit for almost any room in your home. Features include:
- Chrome finish on seat and base
- Doubled wire for strength on seat rim
- Bent-wire, welded Eiffel Tower base
Available with a one-piece leather seat pad, or with a criss-cross two-piece leather pad (the “bikini”).
