Eames RAR Plastic Armchair is an iconic design that epitomises the Modernist Architectural movement. Plastic Armchairs were first presented by Charles and Ray Eames in 1950 as part of the famed New York Museum of Modern Art competition, "Low Cost Furniture Design". Over 65 years later and the design looks just as characterful and pleasing to the eye as it ever has.
Their organically shaped seat shells made of fibreglass-reinforced plastic were later combined with various different bases, such as RAR's maple rockers. The latest version is made of polypropylene and the shape has been modified slightly to offer even greater sitting comfort. RAR stands for Rocking Armchair Rod Base.
The Polypropylene seat shell is dyed throughout ensuring the chair will keep it's vibrancy of colour forever, hiding any scratches well too. The seat base is constructed from steel and has been likened to the Eiffel Tower with its inter-woven metal cross bracing. The metalwork is available in either a Chrome or Basic Dark (Black) powder coated finish. The rockers are solid maple wood and either clear lacquered or dark stained and lacquered.
