A perfect resting place, the smooth plastic shell embraces while the gentle rocking soothes. Fitting for a number of locations, such as the living room as an alternative to a lounge chair, the hallway or conservatory, the iconic form of the shape provides a relaxing space of timeless style and comfort. Featuring a hard-wearing polypropylene seat which rests upon a wired leg frame with a pair of dark maple rockers, the RAR Plastic Rocking Chair is a stand out piece that can beautifully brighten up a room.

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”.
