A Reimagined Eames DSR Chair for Two

A design team from the Raleigh, North Carolina office of Clark Nexsen reimagined a classic Eames DSR chair into a seat for two. The DSR2 comes from the idea that “Good design is meant to be shared” and what better way to do that then to transform an iconic design into a two-seater bench.


The iconic profile is still there, just separated to include an interchangeable section, made from laminated Baltic Birch plywood, that provides extra seating space. Additional inserts could be made to replace this one in a variety of other materials and colors.


The DSR2 competed and won the People’s Choice award at the 2014 Good Design Challenge that was hosted by Herman Miller and Alfred Williams & Company.
