Charles E. DSW Chair - Plastic

Charles E.’s DSW Chair (Dining height Side chair Wood) was a winning entry of the Low Cost Design Competition organised by the New York Museum of Modern Art in 1948. Recognised for its revolutionary design, combining comfort and original style, the DSW has remained a celebrated furniture classic of the 20th century. The ergonomically curved form is perfectly adapted to the shape of the body, and the combination of wood and black metal rods on the base add to the aesthetic value of the design as well as ensuring the stability of the chair.

ItaliaDesigns produces the DSW with stylish wooden legs, interconnected using black metal rods. The seat is made in high-quality polypropylene plastic available in a variety of vibrant and neutral colours. The DSW Chair is also available with a seat in glossy fibreglass, also in a range of colours.

About the Designer

Charles E.

Charles E.

Considered as one of the most influential designers of the 20th century, Charles E. was born in St Louis, Missouri. Perhaps decorated as the finest American designer of his generation, Charles E. was heavily influenced by his uncle’s workings, the great architect William S. Eames.

Despite a healthy education studying architecture at Washington University in St. Louis, Eames best began to put his ideas into motion whilst working as a labourer at the Laclede Steel Company in the town of his birth. Here, he received first-hand knowledge and experience in engineering, drawing and architecture, learning the moulding and treatment techniques he would later become famous for.

Both Charles E. and his wife Ray are still heavily celebrated on an international scale, especially for their work in the field of modern furniture. Both collaborated on numerous projects, earning them the AIA Twenty-five Year Award in 1977 and the prestigious Royal Gold Medal Award in 1979, a year after Charles passed away. Their work is still showcased at MoMA in New York, whilst in 1985 IDSA accredited Eames as "The Most Influential Designer of the 20th Century".
