Eames Plastic Side Chairs
With the models of the Eames chairs made of polyester resin, Charles and Ray Eames introduced the first serial production of a plastic chair. Early on the company from Wheil am Rhein recognized the quality of the chairs and took the production to Europe. For reasons of sustainability, the production of the Eames Plastic Chairs was stopped for the time being because the use of polyester resin was no longer justifiable from an ecological point of view. As of 1999, the most suitable and environmentally friendly polypropylene was used to manufacture the seat shells and the production of the Eames Plastic Chairs was resumed.
