DAR: Dining Armchair Rod-base, designed by Charles & Ray Eames in 1950. The Plastic Armchairs were first presented as part of a New York Museum of Modern Art competition, “Low Cost Furniture Design”. Their organically shaped plastic seat shells were later combined with various different bases and manufactured in their millions. In their latest version made of polypropylene with or without padding, the armchairs now offer even greater sitting comfort. Recycled plastic.
