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.
