The environments that we liked most decorated with the classic chair Vitra Eames

Getting more of the best for more people and for less was the goal of Charles and Ray Eames furniture designers. Creativity led them to create the Plastic Chair and although they tried, none of their works brought them so close to this ideal chair molded in one piece and adapted to the shape of the human body. In the decade of the forties they experimented with the plywood and the aluminum sheet but did not achieve the expected result.

It was, between the search for alternative materials, that led them to the fiberglass reinforced polyester resin. It was unknown in the furniture industry but they with this material got what they wanted. Satisfactory designs to be produced in series.

The lucky participation in the contest, Low-Cost Furniture Design, low cost furniture design, organized by the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1948 It was the trigger and since 1950 they were presented to the market as the first plastic chairs of industrial production in the general history of furniture.

This is how it began and currently the Vitra factory makes comfortable seats in said propylene material that offers a great variety of bases, we focus today on the model Vitra Eames and we see how they result in any space where we want to decorate with them. Currently they are still a trend for their comfort and for their finishes, we no longer only find the Eames chair in polypropylene, also on this material They are upholstered and makes them even more comfortable and fluffy. In addition to its wide range of colors, which make us doubt when choosing them.

We can make different and colorful combinations, as they look equally and with uneven tones brighten the rooms. As you can see the spaces to be decorated with them are very different and in all they combine perfectly. There are a variety of compositions which can range from dining rooms, offices, meeting rooms, outdoor areas of hotels and bars, terraces, gardens, lounges and kitchens ...

Its legs are made in several finishes such as basic black, chrome and gold, black and dark maple wood. This design that has become a classic that dazzles even more if we combine it with contemporary tables, whatever its material, glass, steel or wood. The previous images show us how to achieve a different environment with the same Vitra Eames chair model, that pioneer chair and that we love so much.
