Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. Today's Molded Plastic Chairs are true to the originals and are fully authentic, with updated materials to meet environmental requirements. Charles and Ray Eames, always interested in new materials, saw in plastic the chance to form organic seat shells that conform to the body's shape. The enduring forms and quality construction make the Molded Plastic Chairs - available here with a classic Eames wire base - comfortable, durable performers. The Design: New materials, especially those that held promise for doing more with less, fascinated Charles and Ray Eames throughout their careers. Their fascination led to inventive modern furniture, such as the Molded Plastic Chair. Designed in 1948, it was the first plastic chair to be mass produced The current models look exactly the same as the originals. They remain unupholstered, in keeping with the Eameses requirement that materials be expressed honestly and unselfconsciously. In fact, these were the first one-piece plastic chairs to be left uncovered At the same time, the chairs are better than ever. For example, the shell is now manufactured using more environmentally friendly, high-impact plastic

Good rocking chair

 from California– Verified Buyer

I haven't really used the rocking chair yet. But I've taken it out and put it on the bed. I've not had my baby yet. But from what I've seen with the rocking chair, it's seems to be a good one. It was also easy to put together.

smaller than expected

 from cincinnati, OH– Verified Buyer

I've always been a fan of Eames furniture, and was excited to get this when it came. But I'll admit--I was surprised when I opened the box at just how small it is. I thought for a moment that I'd accidentally ordered the children's size instead.

Until I sat down in it. It's the perfect height and width for an average sized adult, so long as that adult is under 6 feet tall. My son (teenage and just under 5 foot 10 inches) loves it. My husband (at 6 foot 2 inches) rolls his eyes when it's the only chair available.

I tend to be the one using it, since it fits me like a glove, and I find it very comfortable. The plastic gets a bit cold, though, so I recommend throwing a lightweight blanket along the back and seat area for the perfect sit.

Fantastic product!

The product was delivered quickly and arrived in perfect condition. It is the perfect compliment to our living room. No assembly made it easy to take out and drop into place.

 from San Diego, CA– Verified Buyer

Great rocker! Comfortable but no head rest. Looks very modern. 4 stars because of the low back but doesn't really bother me anymore.

In love with a chair.

 from Chicago, IL– Verified Buyer

I sometimes longingly stare at this chair before going bed. It's becoming a problem.
No, but seriously, I like this chair more each day. I'm very glad I bought it.

So cute!

 from Boston, MA– Verified Buyer– Top 100 Reviewer

I got this chair for my friend's nursery in red and it looks so cute! Its very comfortable considering its plastic and fairly small (narrow) so it fits well in a small space.
