Herman Miller ® Eames RAR Molded Plastic Rocking Chair

Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. Today's Molded Plastic Rocking Chairs are true to the originals and are fully authentic, with updated materials to meet environmental requirements. Charles and Ray Eames, always interested in new materials, saw in plastic the chance to form organic seat shells that conform to the body's shape. The enduring forms and quality construction make the Molded Plastic Rocking Chairs - available here with a classic Eames wire base - comfortable, durable performers. The design: New materials, especially those that held promise for doing more with less, fascinated Charles and Ray Eames throughout their careers. Their fascination led to inventive modern furniture, such as this char. Designed in 1948, it was the first plastic chair to be mass produced the current models look exactly the same as the originals. They remain un-upholstered, in keeping with the Eames’s requirement that materials be expressed honestly and unselfconsciously. In fact, these were the first one-piece plastic chairs to be left uncovered at the same time, the chairs are better than ever. For example, the shell is now manufactured using more environmentally friendly, high-impact plastic.

smaller than expected

samantha from cincinnati, OH– Verified Buyer

I've always been a fan of Eames furniture, and was excited to get this when it came. But I'll admit--I was surprised when I opened the box at just how small it is. I thought for a moment that I'd accidentally ordered the children's size instead.

Until I sat down in it. It's the perfect height and width for an average sized adult, so long as that adult is under 6 feet tall. My son (teenage and just under 5 foot 10 inches) loves it. My husband (at 6 foot 2 inches) rolls his eyes when it's the only chair available.

I tend to be the one using it, since it fits me like a glove, and I find it very comfortable. The plastic gets a bit cold, though, so I recommend throwing a lightweight blanket along the back and seat area for the perfect sit.

Nice rocking chair

CK from Minneapolis, MN– Verified Buyer

I like modern furniture so I knew what I was getting. I'll be using it in a nursery now and later it will go anywhere in the house. Its not the most comfortable rocker in the world (no cushion), but I really the modern look.. I ordered the sparrow color and its nice. I ordered a discounted rocker as it was "out of box" so it was 20% off and it came in perfect condition, with free 2 day shipping. I'm happy with the product. Others commented that the rocker is very short. I didn't realize how short it was until it came. Would be difficult for a very tall person.

Good rocking chair

M from California– Verified Buyer

I haven't really used the rocking chair yet. But I've taken it out and put it on the bed. I've not had my baby yet. But from what I've seen with the rocking chair, it's seems to be a good one. It was also easy to put together.
