Vitra chair Eames RAR - Black is beautiful
Vitra gives the Rocking Armchair RAR a contemporary look. The armchair from the Black Collection has an organically shaped, black seat shell and a completely black substructure. This gives the Eames Plastic Armchair a stylish, elegant look and makes it a modern and timeless eye-catcher.

RAR Black vitra chairHistory
In 1946, the first Eames designs went into production. Herman Miller from Zeeland, Michigan was responsible for the production of the first furniture from bended wood. In 1948 Charles and Ray Eames presented the first plastic chairs. In context of the "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition of the Museum of Modern Art, New York, Charles and Ray Eames were able to present the Eames Plastic Side Chairs. These were the first series of plastic chairs to be made in history. Vitra took over the production of the Eames Plastic Chairs for the European market in 1957. In 1993 the production of the chair ended for ecological reasons. With the possibility to manufacture the seat shells with the recyclable polypropylene, Vitra revived the production of the Eames plastic chairs in 1999.
