Rocking chair Eames – Herman Miller – Code 746

The Rocking-chair is a clear example of the Eames’ ongoing process and their desire to do “the best for the maximum, with the minimum” (the best for the most for the least).
The Eames recognised and fully exploited the advantages of their new material, glass fibre reinforced with polyester resins: mouldability, rigidity, pleasantness to the touch, ability to adapt to industrial production methods, a feature that allowed the two designers to develop the shell for mass production.

After their debut at the “Low-Cost Furniture Design” organized by the Museum of Modern Art in 1948, the new seat was launched on the market.
It was 1950 and the first mass-produced plastic chair in the history of furniture was born.
