The Eames Fiberglass Chairs

The Design

The Fiberglass Chairs was released in 1950 in a range of bases and colours on the market and established the now widespread concept of the multifunctional chair, a typus in which a shell can be combined with different bases and thus can meet a wide variety of requirements. Over the following decades the Fiberglass Chairs became one of the most famous furniture classics of the 20th century.

Fascination Fiberglass

The fascination with fiberglass lies in its irregular surface, which, thanks to the clearly visible fibers, almost looks like a natural material. A new production process developed by Vitra makes it possible to produce the seat shell in the six original colours in their first produced material: the Eames Fiberglass Chair is back.
