Charles Eames, the iconic and legendary American furniture designer, was responsible for some truly mesmerizing pieces of furniture but few pieces won him as many accolades nor was quite as revered as the devilishly simple yet undeniably stylish DSW chair.
Eames originally designed and released the DSW chair way back in 1948 as part of a New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) competition encouraging the development of low-cost pieces of designer popularity. The Charles Eames DSW chair proved to be indescribably popular – to the extent that the piece is still on display in the MoMA today.
The DSW chair by Eames was the first industrially manufactured plastic seating and it is, without question, one of the cornerstones of his mightily impressive collection of designer furniture and remains just as popular to this day as it was when it first wowed people over half a century ago.
It is truly testament to Charles Eames capabilities as a designer that his DSW chair is just as relevant in today’s modern, contemporary homes as it was over 50 years ago and he rightly takes his position of one of the 20th century’s most respected and revered designers of furniture.
