Carrie Fisher delivers the lines of her cool and collected Star Wars original audition from an Eames molded fibreglass “shell” DAX armchair, a firm Film and Furniture favourite. With its sculptural shape and comfortable arm rests, the Eames DAX chair is now an archetype of the genre of chairs. 

An organic yet contemporary form, the shell seats rest upon a series of bases – such as the X-base as seen here, or the four-legged wooden base with steel ‘Eiffel’ cross struts.

DAX stands for D for Dining, A for Arm (chair), X for X-base.
