The Eames Wire Base Side Chair is an iconic midcentury chair comprised of a plastic or fiberglass molded seat that sits on a steel base. Originally designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1948 with refinements in the years after, the Eames Wire Base Side Chair is shaped with a deep seat pocket and waterfall edge profile to reduce pressure. The inclusion of the wire base legs often earn the chair the nickname of the Eiffel Chair because of similarities with the Eiffel Tower.
