Product description

The search for alternative materials led the Eames to polyester resin reinforced with fiberglass, a material that until then was practically only used in military applications, such as radomes or aircraft cabins. The Eames studied and exploited to the maximum the advantages of fiberglass: moldability, rigidity and good properties for industrial manufacturing. This material, previously unknown in the furniture industry, allowed them to create a molded seat that could be manufactured in series: the Fiberglass Chair was born.
Fiberglass offered the advantage of being pleasant to the touch and allowing a perfectly molded shape for extraordinary comfort.
The commercialization of the Fiberglass Chairs in 1950 meant the introduction of a type of furniture that has since become omnipresent: the multifunctional chair whose housing can be combined with different bases depending on the use. In response to the enormous popularity of this chair, soon the options of bases and colors were extended. During the following decade, the Fiberglass Chairs became one of the best-known furniture designs of the 20th century.
