Ray & Charles Eames created the Stacking Side Chair (DSS) in response to demands for a lightweight, stacking chair that could be set up quickly for seating large groups and, at the same time, be stored easily. The chairs can be arranged in straight or curved rows. When stacked, the side hooks support and separate the seats to avoid abrasion.
Each shell bears the Herman Miller logo. One chair has several small holes in the upholstery and the other has begun to pull away from the foam. (See photos.)
