Part of the Eames plastic chair series, the abbreviated Eames DSR Chair stands for Dining (D) height, Side (S) chair, on Rod (R) base. The eye-catching design was part of the first series of side chairs developed from 1951 and due to its fabulous construction would soon be labelled the 'Eiffel' chair, for it's resemblance to the famous Parisian tower.

The base design was a narrower adaptation of its sister arm chair, the Eames DAR which had earlier been developed in 1950 with the initial release of the first fiberglass Arm chairs.
With Herman Miller focusing more and more toward the workplace furniture market, the DSR was discontinued in 1967 and all fiberglass chairs were de-commissioned in 1993 when both a lack of interest and a new wave of eco-friendly mindfulness brought its production to a halt. It reappeared however with the 2001 new release of the plastic side chairs sporting the less favorable but more modern ‘polypropylene’ tops. To every purist’s joy, Herman Miller began remaking the fiberglass version of the chair in 2014 albeit with a more conservative palette of colors.

Despite the notoriety that the base has today, it was certainly not as popular a choice or as big a seller as the DSW, DSX or DSS based versions at the time. It was however an always present option and was available in zinc, black or (later years) white powder coating. The DSR-1 was an additional early version which included a detachable hopsack upholstery cover and later versions had upholstery permanently fixed.
The side chairs were only originally released in 3 shell colors until they quickly gathered traction with the buying public and were produced in multiple factories across the US. Since 2010, the Eames DSR Eiffel Chair has been released with a series of molded plywood tops to the same shape and dimensions of the original.
