Manufacture year

The Fiberglass Chairs were launched on the market in 1950, introducing a new furniture typology that has since become widespread: the multifunctional chair whose shell can be combined with a variety of bases to serve different purposes.‎ In response to the enormous popularity of the chair, the choice of bases and colours was subsequently expanded.‎ Over the course of the following decade, the Fiberglass Chairs became one of the best known furniture designs of the twentieth century.‎
Vitra manufactures the Fiberglass Side Chairs and Fiberglass Armchairs by Charles and Ray Eames in some of the early original colours.‎ The fibreglass shells are characterised by their lively visual appeal, which is much-prized today.‎ Fibreglass owes its charm to an irregular surface, which appears almost like a natural material thanks to its clearly visible fibres.‎ The version with a polypropylene shell – the Eames Plastic Chair – also remains available.‎ Together the two chair groups form an extensive family, enabling countless variations of the classic Eames design, with a suitable version for almost every taste and purpose.‎
