The Eames RSR Chair is an architecturally-inspired design that combines a strong plastic shell, intricate rod frame and a rocking base. Due to the varied upholstery finishes available for the chair, and the choice of bold, pastel or primary colours, the Eames RSR Chair will invigorate any space. A strong example of Eames' ingenuity, the RSR Chair adds a novel and funky spin on a classic design. This chair is an extremely fashionable addition to any living space, bedroom or even office. It is a truly classic design, that expertly incorporates textures and invention.
The RSR Chair was first designed by Charles and Ray Eames in the 1950s in an effort to constantly improve their designs. The RSR borrows the form of the DSR, but adds a rocking chair base. These chairs are distinguished by the initials of their names, with the RSR standing for Rocking Side chair with a Rod base. Like all of the Eames range, the instantly recognizable smooth edges and ergonomically designed seat ensure an elegant and comfortable chair. A minimalist approach is a trademark of Eames' work, and it helps deliver a chic and compact piece.
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.
