Original First Generation Eames Zenith Rope-Edge LAX Lounge Chair

About the Item

This first generation Zenith DAX lounge chair in Lemon yellow was designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller. It features the original rope edge beneath the chair, as well as the original checkerboard label and X-base (The checkerboard label was only used from 1950-1953 and the X-base was discontinued in 1954 to be replaced by an H-base.) For collectors, this is the pinnacle. This chair features a fiberglass shell and metal base. It is in nice original condition with only slight discoloration, but no cracks, chips, or structural damage. This chair gets its name "LAX" as an abbreviation of (L) Low (A) Armchair (X) on X-base.

  • Charles & Ray Eames DAR Eiffel Rope Edge Chair, 1st Generation, 1950
    By Herman Miller, Zenith, Charles and Ray Eames
    Located in Brooklyn, NY
    Charles Eames (1907-1978) & Ray Eames (1912-1988) for Zenith Plastics / HermanMiller DAR Eiffel rope-edge chair Venice, California / Zeeland, Michigan, 1950 fiberglass, enameled steel early sticker label Measures: 24 7/8" W x 23 5/8" D x 31 3/8" H All original parts, including rare first gen. feet, which date the piece to the first batch of production (1950). Labelled. Gorgeous museum worthy piece. Quite possibly one of the most famous and iconic chairs ever, the Eames DAR would most commonly become known as the ‘eiffel chair’ due to its sculptured wire base resembling that of Europe’s most notorious landmark. The very first generation of the Eames DAR Eiffel Chair was recognizable not only for the ‘rope edge’ shell but also due to the protruding ‘1st gen’ feet as opposed to boot glides or later plastic feet. The abbreviated Eames DAR Chair stands for the Eames Dining (D) height, Arm (A) Chair, on Rod (R) Base released in the first year of arm chair production of the fiberglass series developed to the marketplace in 1950. The early success of the Eames arm chairs, released in 1950, was a co-ordinated effort between the Eames . Office (Designers), Zenith Plastics (Manufacturers) and Herman Miller (Distributors). The chair series was always designed to have interchangeable bases and the DAR was one of the ‘original 5’ alongside the DAX X-base, LAR cats cradle...
