The Eames Wire Chair is a variation on the organically shaped one-piece seat shell, boasting a light transparency and high technicality. The chairs are available without upholstery, or with a single seat cushion or a seat and backrest cushion. Because of its shape, this upholstery is sometimes referred to as a "bikini".

Wire Chairs can be used in all kinds of situations - at home, in cafés, restaurants, waiting areas and in conference and training rooms.

For the design of the Wire Chair (1951) Charles and Ray Eames used the shape of the famous Fiberglass Chair. With their innovative use of humble steel wire the Eames’ created an original and groundbreaking design.

The use of wire makes the chair light and transparent, producing the impression of a three-dimensional metallic drawing. The seat and base are chrome plated (special stacking version available with linking elements). Bright slim line fabric or leather cushions add even more comfort to these chairs.
