In 1950, the Eames Chair was introduced as the first mass-produced fiberglass chair. It was the result of the work of Charles and Ray Eames, who sought to design a chair from a single piece of plastic that would adapt perfectly to the human body while offering high quality.
Thanks to its multifunctionality and the uniqueness of its material, the Eames chair has become a pioneer of modern design. Soon, several types of shells and bases were introduced, offering endless possibilities for using the chairs within a home, an office, and public spaces.
Today Vitra manufactures the seat shells of the iconic chairs in polypropylene. However, the original version of the Eames Fiberglass Chair produced in glass-fibre reinforced polyester resin is also available. DesignVille offers several types of seat and base combinations:
- DAR (Dining Arm Chair Rod) – armrests, steel base
- DSX (Dining Side Chair X-Base) – without armrests, steel base
- DAW (Dining Arm Chair Wood) – armrests, wooden base
- DSR (Dining Side Chair Rod) – without armrests, steel base

- RAR (Rocking Arm Chair Rod) – rocking chair with armrests
- DKR (Dining K-Wire Rod) - wire shell, steel base
