A Mid-Century Icon, Your Way
The Fiberglass Rocker is a premium quality reproduction that accurately captures the essence of the iconic Molded Fiberglass Rocker (aka RFAR), replicating each proportion, finish and detail skillfully and accurately. Designed in 1948 by legendary husband & wife design team, Charles & Ray, the molded shell chair concept debuted at the MoMA's International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture. Having previously experimented with molded construction techniques through a Navy contract, Charles & Ray were acutely aware that this method offered many possibilities both creatively and practically. The organic shapes they could form were fresh and new, and the manufacturing process itself was well-catered to mass-production.
Charles & Ray's Molded Fiberglass Rocker (RFAR) was designed through an iterative process, as it was adapted from their original arm chair concept. The addition of the rocker base and its wide popularity
is a true testament as to how versatile their shell concept was and still is. One of the most distinguished rocking chair designs of the last 100 years, and without a doubt, the most recognized rocking chair within the genre of mid-century. Now more stylishly relevant than ever, this iconic design has become a mainstay in modern spaces both in the home and in public venues.
