This iconic chair was designed by legendary duo Charles and Ray Eames in 1950. For years, the designer couple explored the fundamental idea of a one-piece seat shell moulded to fit the contours of the human body. After various experiments, the Plastic Armchair (A-shell) and Plastic Side Chair (S-shell) were launched on the market in 1950 as the very first mass-produced plastic chairs in the history of furniture.
Originally made from fibreglass, today Vitra manufactures these comfortable seat shells in polypropylene (a more ecological material), offering a multitude of bases, shell colours and upholstery options. This allows for countless different combinations to used in the widest range of settings – from dining rooms, living rooms and home offices to office workspaces and conference rooms; from restaurants and cafés to break rooms and cafeterias; from waiting areas and auditoriums to terraces and gardens.
Seat shell: dyed-through polypropylene.
Base: five-star base in polished die-cast aluminium with double castors in basic dark.
