Vitra Miniature Eames DKR Wire Chair

Vitra Miniatures Collection.
In 1951, Charles and Ray Eames met the challenge of making a reasonably priced, quality chair that was light yet strong. To achieve strength requirements and an organic shape, they made the rim of the chair out of light-gauge wire and doubled it for strength and stability. This advance won them the first American mechanical patent for design. They molded the seat of cross-woven wires and positioned it on a bent-wire, welded base that reminded some reviewers of the Eiffel Tower.
