Charles Eames RAR Rocker

The iconic Charles Eames RAR Rocker chair is the perfect fusion of traditional and modern, with its glossy plastic and fibreglass shell and wooden curved rockers. Our finest quality furniture version is as stylish and beautiful as the original. The curved seat is moulded from high-quality fibreglass and plastic and comes in a choice of colours to suit every home. The Eiffel tower inspired legs are a unique feature of Charles Eames' style of design and offer uniform support for the body's weight. The rockers have a smooth motion and are available in oak wood.

The story behind the Charles Eames RAR Rocker Chair

Created in 1948, the Charles Eames RAR Rocker forms part of a series of moulded plastic chairs designed by husband and wife team, Charles and Ray Eames. Each one has the same ergonomically designed seat combined with different bases and arm styles. They are identified by their initials – for example, RAR stands for Rocking chair, Armchair with a Rod base. This series of chairs has the iconic status of being the first industrially manufactured plastic chairs. The Charles Eames RAR Rocking Chair was originally intended as a stylish and comfortable nursing chair. Its deep seat, high back and curved arms were designed to support the body while the rocking soothes the baby to sleep. But the chair was far too popular to stay in the nursery, and quickly became a mainstream favourite.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Charles Eames

Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States)

Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple’s most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art’s Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
