Eames Wire Chair with Bikini – DKR.2
After refining their molded plastic chairs, Charles and Ray Eames began experimenting with a chair made of welded wire. To achieve this design, the Eameses had to figure out how to create the shape and strength they desired, while keeping manufacturing costs low. The answer turned out to be the use of a lighter-gauge wire forming the rim of the chair and doubled for strength, which won the Eameses their first American mechanical patent for a design, and resulted in the Wire Chair (1951). This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller®, Inc. Eames® is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller.
