Eames Wire Base Side Chair

Set of dimensioned drawings of the Eames Wire Base Side Chair with measurements for side, front, back and plan views

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.

The Eames Wire Base Side Chair has a back height of 31.5” (80 cm), seat height of 17.5” (44.5 cm), width of 18” (45.7 cm), and depth of 21.5” (54.6 cm).
