The Eames DSR Plastic Side Chair RE has been updated with new colours for 2024 made from recycled plastic. The update creates a new link between the Eames Fiberglass Chairs and the Eames Plastic Chairs. In an extensive process of research and analysis, the historical Eames colours have inspired a harmonious palette that emphasises the affinity of the two chair groups. The result is a rich spectrum of hues highlighting the special properties of the different materials. The interplay of vibrant and more subtle colours makes it easy to combine Eames Plastic Chairs and Eames Fiberglass Chairs.

Eames DSR Plastic Side Chair RE is a contemporary version of the legendary fiberglass chair, with its chromed ‘Eiffel Tower’ style leg base. It was produced in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the Museum of Modern Art in New York’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition and was the first industrially manufactured plastic chair.

Since the 1950s the organically shaped seat shell of the Plastic Side Chair has been combined with various bases and produced in the millions. In the current recycled polypropylene version, the side chair generates fewer climate-changing emissions and consumes significantly less energy during production. Also, its curved design provides even greater seating comfort.

From 2015 the DSR has been available in a revised (slightly larger) size, this 'New Height' is now the only standard DSR model available.
