Designed for the “Low-Cost Furniture Design” competition at MoMA in New York in 1950, the DSW is the result of the Eames couple's research into fiberglass molding until then reserved for aeronautics. Its one-piece shell adapted to human anatomy is revolutionizing the furniture industry.
Icon of the 20th century, the DSW (Dining Side chair Wood) is part of history.
It was produced on a large scale from 1950 in the United States by the manufacturer Hermann Miller. This is the beginning of “mass design”.
The first Eames chairs from 1950, distributed by the American Herman Miller, will come from Zenith Plastics in Gardena, California.
After 1953, the publisher changed factories several times, but manufacturing remained American. In Europe, the rights to DSW will be purchased by Vitra.

Lightweight, versatile, easy to maintain, available in multiple colors and mass-produced, the Eames DSW chair has conquered interiors around the world and is now on display in the prestigious collections of modern art museums.
Versatile, the DSW chair can be found in offices as well as in private interiors.
Eames chairs were then available in numerous models: RAR rocking chair, DAW wooden-legged armchair, DAR eiffel-footed armchairs, etc.

Non-contractual photo. Various signs of age-related wear may be present.
