Eames RAR Rocking Chair 2019 Special Editions

The range of Plastic Chairs designed by Charles and Ray Eames are amongst the most recognised chair designs of the 20th Century . One model has always stood out among the myriad of combinations of organically shaped shells and various bases in this large family of chairs: the iconic RAR (Rocking Armchair Rod Base).

‘Getting the most of the best to the greatest number of people for the least’: with these words, Charles and Ray Eames described one of their main goals as furniture designers. None of their other designs come as close to achieving this ideal as the Plastic Chairs.

The RAR (Rocking Armchair Rod) designed 1948-1950. For years, the designer couple explored the fundamental idea of a one-piece seat shell moulded to fit the contours of the human body. After experiments with plywood and sheet aluminium in the 1940s produce unsatisfactory results, their search for alternative materials led them to glass-fibre reinforced polyester resin.

The Eameses recognised and fully exploited the advantages of the material: mouldability, rigidity, pleasant tactile qualities, suitability for industrial manufacturing methods. With this material, which was previously unknown in the furniture industry, they successfully developed the shell designs for serial production. After their debut at the ‘Low-Cost Furniture Design’ competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art in 1948, the Plastic Armchair (A-shell) and Plastic Side Chair (S-shell) were launched on the market in 1950 as the very first mass-produced plastic chairs in the history of furniture.

Today Vitra manufactures the comfortable seat shells of the Eames Plastic Chairs in polypropylene, while those of the reintroduced Eames Fiberglass Chairs are produced in glass-fibre reinforced polyester resin. There is also a wide choice of bases and shell colours, along with countless upholstery options making the range of chairs completely customisable to the users needs.

As part of the latest Home Stories campaign Vitra have introduced two Special edition’s of the RAR which will be available until the end of 2019, the first option is with a seat shell basalt, dark maple sledges, fully upholstered in Credo 25 mother of pearl/black with piping in black and in contrast the other is with seat shell creme, golden maple sledges, fully upholstered in Credo 18 pale rose/cognac with piping in white.

New FireGlobe Accessories

Eva Solo has launched a range of accessories to compliment it’s FireGlobe which has been incredibly popular with those who enjoy their outside spaces. FireGlobe is not just for cool spring evenings and the summer – it is also intended as a decorative and warming element in the autumn and winter too.

FireGlobe does not have to sit in the same place all the time, but is easy to move around the garden or patio thanks to the hole in the top which acts as a handle. A loose grate in the bottom of the globe ensures adequate ventilation, while the three legs keep the fire place sufficiently high above the ground to prevent scorching of the grass or paving stones.

The sculptural hemispherical shape cleverly protects the fire from the wind – while also matching the Eva Solo range of stylish outdoor products.

Now you can transform your FireGlobe fireplace into a barbecue with the New Grill Grid that matches the FireGlobe’s minimalist design. Place a couple of sweetcorn cobs or sausages on the grid and enjoy the scent of barbecuing over an open fire or charcoal.

The FireGlobe Log Holder is another New piece offering an effective way of storing your firewood in a stylish, sculptural way, as well as being a decorative element beside your wood-burning stove indoors or outside on the patio.  It shares the same elegant design as the FireGlobe fireplace, and its handy shape makes it easy to move firewood from one place to another.

It is designed for both indoor and outdoor use, and is easy to clean with a damp cloth.

 

 

Rookie

Rookie is a small, agile and – by office standards – unconventionally simple chair designed by Konstantin Grcic for Vitra. It provides a high level of immediate comfort with a minimal number of adjustments.

‘Rookie is all about flexibility and change. Its design aesthetic symbolises that magic moment when something new is beginning, but everything is still up in the air. Equally suited as a single desk chair for students or in larger numbers across a wide range of corporate workplaces, Rookie is designed for environments that encourage the creation and exchange of ideas.’ Konstantin Grcic

A few aesthetic details reveal affinities with Allstar, the first office chair developed by Grcic for Vitra. Just like Allstar, Rookie is an excellent seating solution for modern offices, universities and other environments where users with mobile work habits do not want to make a lot of individual adjustments every time they change locations.
Both the seat and backrest of Rookie are height-adjustable. In addition to these classic functions of a task chair, other ergonomic features are directly incorporated into Rookie’s structural design: the backrest flexes slightly when pressure is applied, and the front edge of the seat is unusually pliant.

Gas-assist injection moulding technology is used to manufacture Rookie’s plastic seat shell, which extends upwards at the rear to support the backrest element. The matching shell components and base are available in either a light-toned or dark-toned version.

The seat and backrest covers come in a selection of various fabrics and one type of leather. This presents an array of colour choices, enabling both subtle and striking combinations.

New Metallised Brass Finish From Louis Poulsen

Light is vital to our well-being. Poul Henningsen realised this back in the 1920’s when he set out to create a glare-free lamp, which shapes the light to maximise human well-being. With his now iconic three-shade system, PH took control of the light – and laid the foundation for the Louis Poulsen design philosophy, which has defined how the brand have thought about and shaped light ever since.

The reflective three shade system is based on the logarithmic spiral to make optimum use of the light source. PH determined the form of the shades by the way they were required to shape and reflect the light. The result is a beautiful, comfortable and glare-free light making both homes and people more beautiful. Now available in a beautiful Metallised Brass finish.

The lid is high and roomy, with plenty of space for barbecuing large joints or two whole chickens. Thanks to the side handles, it is easy to move the grill.
