The Eames DAR Plastic Armchair has been updated with new colours for 2019. The update creates a new link between the Eames Fiberglass Chairs and the Eames Plastic Chairs. In an extensive process of research and analysis, the historical Eames colours have inspired a harmonious palette that emphasises the affinity of the two chair groups. The result is a rich spectrum of hues highlighting the special properties of the different materials. The interplay of vibrant and more subtle colours makes it easy to combine Eames Plastic Armchairs and Eames Fiberglass Armchairs.

Eames DAR Plastic Armchair is a contemporary version of the legendary fiberglass chair, with its chromed ‘Eiffel Tower’ style leg base. It was produced in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the Museum of Modern Art in New York’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition and was the first industrially manufactured plastic chair in the world.

Since the 1950s the organically shaped seat shell of the Plastic Armchair has been combined with various bases and produced in the millions. In the current polypropylene version the armchair provides even greater seating comfort and much improved environmental credentials. The metal bases are either chromed or powder-coated.

From 2015 the DAR has been available in a revised (slightly larger) size, this 'New Height' is now the only standard DAR model available.
