Eames Wire Base Side Chair

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.
