Description

Treat yourself to an ORIGINAL iconic piece by Vitra. An original will always retain its value. It’ll be with you all your life and outlast you, ready to be passed on to the next generation. The Swiss design house Vitra is the only company authorised to manufacture Charles & Ray Eames’ products for Europe: if you own an Eames product manufactured by Vitra, you can be sure that it’s an original. Charles and Ray Eames are two of the most important designers of the 20th century. Launched in 1948, their iconic Shell Chairs are among the major creations in the history of furniture. In the 1950s, Charles and Ray began experimenting with bent and welded wire. With the Wire Chair, they use steel wire to replicate the organically shaped seat shell of their Eames Plastic Side Chair. In this wire version, the steel wire technique is entirely at the service of transparency and lightness. The steel wire shell is mounted on the legendary "Eiffel Tower" base, a filigree structure that stands out for its unparalleled combination of formal lightness and constructive stability. Harry Bertoia was inspired by the Wire Chair to design his famous Diamant chair for competitor Knoll, who secured his services after he had been involved in designing the Wire Chair in the Eames workshop... This inimitable classic is extremely robust and suitable for use in restaurants, canteens, cafeterias and informal meeting areas. The chromed steel version is for indoor use only. The epoxy lacquered steel finish is also suitable for use in the garden or on the terrace. The Wire Chair is available without upholstery or with seat and back cushions. Due to its shape, the two-part cushion is also known as the "Bikini" cushion. Whether made from fibreglass, polypropylene or welded steel wire, Eames shell chairs are shaped by the human anatomy to provide an increased level of comfort. Due to the high quality of Vitra originals, the manufacturer offers a 10-year guarantee (register your product on the dedicated website to benefit from the extended warranty).
