The Fiberglass Chairs were launched on the market in 1950, introducing a new furniture typology that has since become widespread: the multi-functional chair
whose shell can be combined with a variety of bases to serve different purposes. Over the course of the following decade, the Fiberglass Chairs became one of the best known furniture designs of the twentieth century. Vitra manufactures the Fiberglass Side Chairs and Fiberglass Armchairs by Charles and Ray Eames in some of the early original colours. The fibreglass shells are characterised by their lively visual appeal, which is much-prized today.
