Eames Plastic Side Chair on Stretchers

01 product description

Product description

The Eames Plastic Chairs are renewed versions of the legendary Fiberglass Chairs. The original, which was the very first industrially produced plastic chair, was jointly developed with Zenith Plastics for the ‘Low-Cost Furniture Design’ competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art. In the current version made of polypropylene, these chairs provide even greater comfort.

With its simple organic shape, the Plastic Side Chair now seems like an archetype of the genre of chairs whose shell can be combined with diverse bases. The selection of bases makes it possible to use the chairs in a wide variety of settings: from the dining room or home office to the garden. Shells come in a broad range of colours and upholstery versions, so that components can be mixed and matched to find the perfect chair for individual needs.

The Eames Plastic Side Chair is complemented by the Eames Plastic Armchair with integrated armrests.
