Product Description

Eames® Molded Plastic Armchair with Rocking Base (RAR)

Designed in 1948 by Charles and Ray Eames, and first presented at The Museum of Modern Art in the International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture, the Molded Plastic Chair was the first plastic chair to be mass-produced. The work of the Eames design team is included in the Museum’s collection, and has been featured in numerous exhibitions throughout MoMA’s history. The current models are an exact reproduction of the originals, with a clean, simple form that is sculpted to fit the body. They are made with recycled and recyclable materials. The rocker base is made of stained-maple runners. Made by Herman Miller.

History

Mid-Century Design

Following World War II, a number of factors combined to foster a new direction in home products and furniture. New materials, such as molded plywood and plastic, and advances in mass production techniques opened a world of design options. Through the efforts of companies like Herman Miller, their longtime design director George Nelson, and the influential team of Charles and Ray Eames, these new designs could be produced for a broad market. A new vocabulary of ergonomic form, versatile function, and synthetic material emerged—and some of the most beloved furniture of the century was created.
