Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche is honored to present thanks to Vitra the Eames Fiberglass Chair. Launched on the market in 1950, it was the first plastic chair to be mass produced . The Eames Plasitic Chair introduced a new furniture typology that has since become widespread: the multifunctional chair whose shell can be combined with a variety of different bases to serve diverse purposes. The Fiberglass Chairs became one of the best known furniture designs of the twentieth century. After 30 years of absence, the Eames Fiberglass Chair is back, exclusively at Le Bon Marché.
Charles and Ray Eames are counted among the most important figures of twentieth-century design. Their work spans the fields of furniture design, filmmaking, photography and exhibition design. Vitra is the sole authorised manufacturer of Eames products for Europe and the Middle East.
The Vitra Accessories Collection encompasses the growing portfolio of design objects, accessories and textiles produced by the Swiss furniture company. The collection is based on classic patterns and objects conceived by designers such as Alexander Girard, George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames. In addition to these classics, it also includes pieces by contemporary designers. Authenticity, joy and playfulness are hallmarks of the Vitra Accessories Collection.
Beginning with the story behind this icon of modern furniture design – which has been manufactured by Vitra for over 50 years – the Lounge Chair Atelier opens up various perspectives : from the choice of materials to individual production steps, right through to the longevity and sustainability of a design that remains as contemporary today as ever.
