Molded Fiberglass Arm Chair

A Mid-Century Icon Made Your Way
The molded chair concept was originally created as a prototype for MoMA's International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design and introduced in 1948. The design was the result of years of experimentation with molded forms as a potential medium in mass-market furniture construction. The organic shapes the medium could produce were something fresh and new, were well suited to form-fitting comfort and could be made affordable. The original "shell chairs" (which included the Molded Fiberglass Wire-Base Armchair aka DFAR) became 20th century icons, whose popularity has only grown well into the 21st century.

Inmod's Molded Fiberglass Arm Chair is an accurate reproduction that stays true to the original shell chair designs and to their styling, quality and specifications. It is stocked in its most popular configurations and can be ordered in your choice of fiberglass color, base color and seat finish (matte or glossy). Each detail that made the original Molded Fiberglass Wire-Base Armchair special has been carefully preserved to ensure an authentic look and quality.


  • Highly accurate reproduction of the Molded Fiberglass Wire-Base Armchair
  • Stocked in your choice of black or white in both matte and glossy finishes with stainless steel wire-base frame
  • Custom options offer a dozen iconic mid-century colors (available in matte and glossy finishes) and white or black powder-coated steel wire-base frame
  • Black plastic feet are safe on delicate floors
  • Black rubber shock-mounts under seat protect fiberglass seat from being damaged during assembly and through normal use
  • Suitable for residential & commercial use

I should have went with my gut and ordered in green like I originally wanted - now i'm stuck with a color that doesn't match, design is what i wanted but should have thought more about color choices

Love the sheen on the glossy fiberglass, brightens up the space especially in white, opted for the arm chairs instead of the standard in a similar style

I spoke to Alexis in customer service as I was having trouble deciding on a combination of options for my space. She helped me decide and made ordering really simple. I was able to customize them to my space and they look fantastic. They catch your eye. I did go with the custom option and it took 12 weeks to arrive but 100% worth the wait. Thank you Alexis and Inmod!!!
Customized to match my room. Comfortable. Well made. Great service.

Is the price for 2 chairs or just one chair?
1 Answer
The price listed is for each chair, but must be ordered in quantities of 2, as this is how the chairs are boxed for shipment.

you say fiberglass, is it actual fiberglass where you can see the fibers (like the original) I understand they are making that again
1 Answer
Our molded fiberglass arm chairs are made from fiberglass. There are different types of fiberglass being made and our version does not have the fibers showing like some versions of the original. We plan to offer a version with the fibers showing in the next several months.
