Product Information

Description
Charles & Ray Eames first coined the idea for a moulded shell chair with interchangeable bases in 1948, in response to the 'International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design'.

Having formed their first prototype using expensive metal, the Eames's quickly identified glass-fibre reinforced polyester resin as a better, cheaper alternative. Until then, fibreglass had been primarily used within military applications, but the design duo recognised its suitability for furniture. Using this material, they could create moulded, strong, and lightweight seat shells for mass-production, and the Fiberglass Chair was born.

The collection of armchairs and side chairs share the original palette of warm natural colours developed by the Eameses’, plus a series of sturdy bases that give each chair its own distinct character.

Materials
Seat shell: dyed-through, glass-fibre reinforced polyester (fibreglass). Just like the earliest models, today‘s fibreglass shells are also slightly transparent in some colours. Four-legged tubular steel base.

Fitted with felt basic dark glides for hard floor. Other glides are available upon request.

Dimensions
W 63   D 60   H 83 cm
