Vintage Eames DKR-2. A 1950's Herman Miller "Chairs" poster described this version Eames chair: "The formed wire shell of these chairs is welded into a single, lightweight unit. The double perimeter wire forms a continuous open truss for added strength. The versions have two-piece upholstered pads which are easily removable for cleaning." The earliest wire chairs, including this example, were stuffed with cattle body hair and were made at the Washington Blvd address.

Offered here is an all original vintage Eames DKR-2; the seat and base are original to each other. It includes the original Alexander Girard hopsack bikini which is really rare. The chair is in beautiful condition, as though it just left the showroom in 1954. The chair has does have some signs of use / damage to the bikini but no repairs, and no bent or broken rods to the wire. It will make an excellent addition to an Eames collection featuring the most important examples.
