Manufacturer: Vitra

Designer: Charles & Ray Eames 1950

This is an original genuine Vitra piece.

Plastic Armchairs were first presented as part of the famed New York Museum of Modern Art competition Low Cost Furniture Design. Their organically shaped seat shells made of plastic were later combined with various different bases such as RAR's rockers and manufactured in their millions. In their latest version made of polypropylene the Armchairs now offer even greater comfort.

Materials: Seat shell: dyed-through, recycled polypropylene, 100% recyclable.

Base: wire base with cross struts, chrome-plated or powder-coated, solid maple runners.

Note: due to the composition of the recycled material, the seat shell colours exhibit very subtle specks of pigment.

All models are available with a seat cushion (screwed to the seat shell) or full upholstery. The fully upholstered version has moulded polyurethane foam padding covered in fabric, attached to the shell with a welted edge. Different shell and upholstery colours and various bases provide a multitude of possible combinations

Dimensions: Width 630mm x Depth 810mm x Height 760mm (Seat Height: 370mm)

Origin of wood: maple (Acer platanoides) from Western Europe and/or Poland.
