Charles and Ray Eames created the DKR Shell chair to emulate their already popular DAR Shell Chair. DKR depicts D. Dining height K. K-wire Seat R. R-wire Base. Building on the familiar ergonomic shape from previous success the Eames showed their grasp on good design. Abigail showed the chair with the addition of a cushion and a beautiful detail on the intricate K-wire seat. Audra’s is more of a simplification of the seat concentrating her efforts on the R-wire Base.

Chair CardsThis blog was started to track the exceptional work by the students of UNCG in the Interior Architectural Design Program. Our History 221 and 222 classes use these cards to help familiarize us with historically significant design and designers. The initial purpose is for the students, however, it will remain for comments and use by anyone interested in design. - Brian - BSPeck@uncg.edu
