The rocking chair Eames Plastic Armchair RAR (Rocking Armchair Rod Base) is part of the famous line of chairs Vitra designed by Charls and Ray Eames. The project started in 1950 and it is the modern reinterpretation of another legendary chair, Fiberglass Chair. Developed in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the competition "Low-Cost Furniture Design" at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, was the first mass-produced plastic chair.
The characteristic seat of organic form, first in plastic reinforced with fiber glass and polypropylene now, has been in time combined with several types of different bases, just as the rocker RAR. A rocking chair made of four chromed steel legs resting on two wooden rockers painted with a unique design. The shell, polypropylene, organic shape allows a high comfort and gives a strong personality to the solutions of modern furniture.
As for the choice of colors, in addition to classic black and white, from 2009 models are available with the body in many different colors, not subject to fading from UV rays, thanks to a special treatment. Vitra launched in 2012, with the "RAR Winter Special", a limited version of the popular rocking chair, allowing this classic of appearing in a whole new light: the body is made of polypropylene dyed "basalt" and mounted on a black shirt with dark-stained maple sleigh.
Vitra produces these chairs in high quality from 1957 for millions of copies worldwide.
