Eames Plastic Chair «RAR Winter Special »
The Plastic Armchairs were first presented as part of the Low Cost Furniture Design competition sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The chairs with the organically shaped plastic seat shell were later combined with a variety of bases and long ago took their place as a furniture classic of the 20th century.
With the RAR Winter Special, Vitra is launching a time-limited version of the popular classic rocking chair by Charles and Ray Eames – and presenting it in a new light: the shell in an earthy dark grey rests on a black base and on dark stained maple runners. This top-quality combination appears restrained and gives the chair an exclusive and contemporary look – whether on its own in the home, grouped in a lobby or in a hotel room.
The RAR Winter Special will be available from the end of October 2012 until the end of March 2013.
