Black Upholstered Herman Miller Original Eames "Bikini" DKR2 Wired Side Chair
This is an example of a used, original Herman Miller Eames Wired DKR-2472109E8 model side shell chair, paired with an iconic chrome Effiel base. The metal wiring shell is covered with a black upholstered pad to provide that extra comfort, making this a perfect chair to have if you are looking for something exciting and different.
This model received its name as the "Bikini" chair due to the upholstery removable pad which covers the top and bottom section of the chair, which imitates a swimming suit. This was to provide comfort and support for the user, a later design feature that differentiates DKR1 from DKR2. The upholstery designs were made by Alexander Girard, and it comes with a variety of colours and fabrics.
This used, black DKR2 is in excellent condition; the black upholstery insert has no major scratches or marks on it and is removable if you wish to do so. The chrome Effiel base remains in good used condition and still very much stable. Further images are available upon request.
The authentication suggests that this chair was manufactured in the US, 2018.
Eames shell chairs vary in their investment interest depending on many factors. The main few are the age, condition, colour, and origin of the shell alongside whether it is on its original base. This Black upholstered DKR chair is unique in its own rights and a worth-while investment.
