Originally designed by Charles and Ray Eames',the ESW chair, along with their DAW Chair revolutionized furniture in the 1950s with its unique style and grace. Taking advantage of the development of new technologies and materials developed during World war 2, and The Eames' pioneered the use of plywood and fibreglass in furniture design, and the DAW was one of the first industrially produced plastic chairs in the world.
The seat follows the shape of the body to make it more comfortable and the wooden legs are strengthened with steel. Elegant, comfortable and strong,this chair has over the years won a place among the most iconic pieces of furniture created in modern times!
The continued popularity of mid Century modern design, is a testament to the quality and creative thinking behind the 1950's movement that the Eames's was spear heading.
And along with designs from their peers, such as Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner and Jean Prouve, the Eames plastic chairs are now firmly placed in hall of fame of modern design...
Now A staple in most Scandinavian interiors, the timeless design fits in any settings...
