Seller's description

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. Fiberglass chairs came onto the market as early as 1950 and quickly became very popular due to their variability and particular longevity. These are bowls in the color Seafoam, which are provided with a La Fonda base. They designed it in 1961 for the legendary La Fonda del Sol restaurant in New York. These bases have been repainted and are in very good condition. The price is per chair. On request, bowls in other colors can also be installed (price base frame: CHF 300 / piece).
