Description

New and exciting, Vitra have re-introduced the classic Eames chairs in fiberglass, as originally intended back in the 1950's. In 1948, Charles and Ray Eames participated in the 'International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design', organised by the New York Museum of Modern Art, entering a chair with a seat shell moulded to fit the contours of the human body along with a concept for a variety of bases. Their design won second prize. However, the metal seat shell proved too complex and expensive to achieve successful mass production. The couple's search for alternative materials eventually led them to glass-fibre reinforced polyester resin. Fibreglass offered the added advantage of pleasant tactile qualities and a perfectly moulded form for optimal comfort. Until this exciting development they were only available in the UK in polypropylene but now with advanced technology Vitra have brought them back to the market. The chairs themselves need little introduction - the striking series of bases and combination of revolutionary seat shells were innovative at the time and have brought the chair collection design icon status. The Eames Fiberglass Chair is instantly recognisable (and widely copied) today proving their popularity.
