As a contribution to the "International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design" held by the New York Museum of Modern Art in 1948, Charles and Ray Eames submitted a chair with a one-piece, body-shaped seat made of metal, the base of which could be variably replaced. The concept was progressive at a time when chairs mainly consisted of a seat, a backrest and fixed legs. Although the design was awarded second place, series production was not suitable due to its expensive materials. While looking for an alternative material that was malleable, yet robust and suitable for industrial processing, the Eames came across polyester resin, a new material for the furniture industry, which was reinforced with fiberglass fibers. The fiberglass chairs came onto the market as early as 1950 and quickly enjoyed great popularity due to their variability and particular longevity - which continues to this day. This eggshell white Eames fiberglass armchair features a deep, chrome-plated H-base. According to the pictures, you can see three circular holes on the seat that have been newly filled.
