Vitra has now extended the palette of the Eames DSR Plastic Side Chair to include four fresh colour combinations, which look good not only in the dining room but also in the garden. 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 Chairs and Eames Fiberglass Chairs.

Eames DSR Plastic Side Chair 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.

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

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

Charles was by highly influenced by the Finnish Architect Eliel Saarinen who encouraged Eames to move to Michigan to further study Architecture at the Cranbrook Academy of Art.
