Abigail Buchanan * Audra Volpi * Dajana Nedic

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.
