Product Description

A pair of excellent vintage Eames DKX wire chairs for Herman Miller on original silver X bases, perfect models of the coveted wire style of the fiberglass chair. The orange vinyl upholstery by Alexander Girard on the white finished wires looks amazing and gives the sense of a great combination.

The wire version of the iconic shell chair was released in the late 50s, creating a nice trio of available finishes of chairs – plywood (DCW, LCW), fiberglass and metal – for customers. The introduction of upholstery options for the fiberglass and for the wire chairs meant personalization could be achieved. The earliest upholstered options were designed as ‘slip-on’ covers, enabling the customer to change the colour they wanted when they chose – but were finished with leather edges rather than the later rubber edging which is more commonly known.

Individual Characteristics

The wire frame construction is in good vintage condition. It has aged well but some signs of use and age are evident.

The vinyl upholstery finish is in a similarly aged condition with some potential light marking around the stitching area and with some minor edging degradation/wire aging (as seen in the pictures) but, as a completely original, vintage, example of this design classic, it is still a rather remarkable piece.

The label on the underside of the upholstery confirms their authenticity.
