The fiberglass creations of Charles and Ray Eames have become essentials in our contemporary interiors. If today, Vitra reissues are designed in plastic, they have not lost their charm of yesteryear. This week, the editorial team has set its sights on the Plastic Armchairs, a kind of rocking chair with an enveloping shell. Presented for the first time by Charles and Ray Eames as part of the "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition organized by the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Plastic Armchairs quickly met with great success. These small, very comfortable rocking armchairs, with an organic line of hulls, were produced for the first time in 1950 in fiberglass, a durable, robust and durable material, going through the years without aging. On this model of RAR armchair, are associated four feet in crosses of steel wire fixed on two skids of blond wood. Today, the Vitra brand is reissuing the polypropylene model, and in a pretty palette of colors. Only concern, its price! Because to enjoy a nice reissue at home, you will have to pay a little more than 500 euros. Unless you are tempted by the models, certified copy of the Vitra offered by many other brands at low prices. The proof with our RAR armchair unearthed at Cultfurniture at 87 euros. All you have to do is let yourself be tempted!
