Charles and Ray Eames realised their first successful, single-shell form in 1950 with the Moulded Fibreglass Chairs. However, when the environmental risks associated with fibreglass production became more widely understood, the decision was made to switch to a safer plastic. In 2004, Herman Miller reintroduced the Moulded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base in polypropylene.
The Moulded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base is exemplary of the Eameses’ iterative process and their desire to make “the best for the most for the least.”
With each new finish and configuration, this rocking chair continues to push the boundaries of what the shell chair can be, whether it’s in an office lounge or the corner of your living room.
Made of 100 percent recyclable polypropylene, the Moulded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base’s subtle matte texture offers a soft tactility and notable durability and is available in five archival colours and a variety of Hopsack upholstery options straight from the Alexander Girard archive.
