In 1948, Charles and Ray Eames participated in the 'International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design', organised by the New York Museum of Modern Art, entering a chair with a seat shell moulded to fit the contours of the human body along with a concept for a variety of bases. Their design won second prize. However, the metal seat shell proved too complex and expensive to achieve successful mass production. The couple's search for alternative materials eventually led them to glass-fibre…The Eiffel Tower base of the DSR chair is an intricate construction made of steel wire, combines light, elegant forms with structural strength.


Seat shell: dyed-through, glass-fibre reinforced polyester (fibreglass).
