A perfect resting place, the smooth surface of the fibreglass shell embraces and supports the body, whilst the RAR runners allow a gentle, calming rocking motion. Fitting for a number of locations, such as the living room as an alternative to a lounge chair, the iconic form provides a relaxing space of timeless style and comfort. Crafted from the newly reissued fibreglass seat which rests upon a wired leg frame, supported by the defining dark maple rockers, the RAR Fiberglass Rocking Chair is a stand out piece that can beautifully brighten up a room. This chair is part of the Eames collection of shell chairs.
American husband and wife design duo Charles and Ray Eames have had a profound influence on the visual character of American life, producing original work within the fields of architecture, furniture design, industrial design, manufacturing and the photographic arts.
The Eames’ first partnered with Vitra in 1957 to produce some of the most iconic pieces of furniture in the history of interior design. Today Vitra continues to reflect their philosophy on design and functionality, best understood through Charles’ own words: “Recognising the need is the primary condition for the design”.
