This is an original second generation mid century fibreglass Zenith DAX Eames Chair in orange. Zenith Plastics was the first factory used by Charles & Ray Eames to produce their shell chairs. This particular chair dates back to the 1950’s. Without doubt, it is becoming more and more rare to find these wonderful early editions.
The fibreglass shell is mounted on a black steel x base. Although these are early editions, they do not have the rope edge. The fibreglass is in good condition and is deeply fibrous. There is some great fibre showing throughout. This can be seen clearly in the photographs and is a clear indication of it’s early vintage. Early editions had the fibre showing through, while later editions were of a smoother block of cooler. This chair also has three dots that denote the Zenith production and date it to the 1950’s. All in all, this iconic chair is a little piece of mid century design history and feels just as contemporary as it did in the 1950’s.
