Vitra Eames RAR Winter Special

Available for a limited time only: the RAR Winter Special.

The RAR Winter Special is a new version of the popular, classic rocking chair by Charles & Ray Eames. Available only until the end of March 2013, the RAR Winter Special has a stunning new finish.

The earthy dark grey shell is mounted onto a black frame with dark stained maple wood skids. This combination gives the chair an exclusive, contemporary look.

The Plastic Armchairs were first presented as part of the Low Cost Furniture Design competition sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. With their organically-shaped seat shell made of plastic, these chairs were later combined with different bases, and have since been renowned as a 20th-century furniture design classic. Vitra has produced these chairs in high quality since 1957.

RAR Winter Special product specifications:

  • The seat shell is made of dyed polypropylene in the colour “basalt”
  • Strutted four-legged wire base, powder coated in basic dark
  • Wooden skids made of dark-stained maple
