Molded Plastic Rocker

The Quintessential Mid-Century Rocking Chair

The Molded Plastic Rocker is a stylish reproduction that accurately preserves the character and beauty of the modern classic Molded Plastic Rocker (aka RAR) and replicates each proportion, finish and detail skillfully and with acute attention to detail and quality. The molded shell chair concept was introduced at the International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture at the MoMA in 1948. This iconic design allowed for the creation of organic shapes that were fresh and new in the world of furniture, and these designs could be mass-produced, ultimately fulfilling their desire to make quality modern design affordable.

The Molded Plastic Rocker (RAR) was adapted from an earlier version that was constructed of fiberglass. The fiberglass rocker was in fact adapted from a stationary armchair that was introduced as part of the original shell chair collection which debuted at the MoMA. The addition of the rocker base and the recognition it received is a true testament as to how versatile the shell concept was and still is. One of the most distinguished rocking chair designs of the last 100 years, and without a doubt, one of the greatest contributions to mid-century modern design. Now more stylishly relevant than ever, this iconic design has become a mainstay in modern spaces both in the home and in public venues.

Inmod's Molded Plastic Rocker faithfully captures the style and quality of the original, and offers several options. It is constructed of fully-recyclable polypropylene, and has a chromed steel wire-base with solid ash wood legs. Its softly matted seat is available in both white and black.

July 23, 2020
Nothing else like it out there. Best purchase of the year in my book. I've been redesigning a bit in the house since the covid quarantine began and I've got to say changing things around has made it easier to be stuck indoors for a majority of my week. It's been a great new spot to rock and get work done on my phone.

seat / cushion
December 19, 2019
Don't know what all the fuss is about when it comes to molded plastic seats, the design is interesting but a cushion would have gone a long way for comfort, fortunately I still like this style so I am not parting with it!

rockers on the porch

Super different design! Purchased two of them for our enclosed porch. Extending our mid-century style to the outside was a great decision

rethinking
September 22, 2018
I wanted to take a leap and try adding something on the artsy side to my home, rethinking the placement of it now, still a cool chair but not my cup of tea

relaxing comfort
April 5, 2018
Kitschy rocker, surprisingly way more comfortable and relaxing then I imagined it could be - I originally bought for it's appearance but I wanted to emphasize the level of comfort!

didn't account for space
April 5, 2018
I didn't anticipate the amount of space a rocker takes up, it's not too much but i definitely didn't account for its ability to rock in the surrounding space in my back sunroom

old school function meets modern design
March 12, 2018
Such a wise decision ordering this for my home and I'm really impressed that there is a rocking chair out there in this style - merges the old school with the new - such an amazing find!

adds movement and character to my living room
February 22, 2018
I had some difficulty deciding if I wanted to go for this style as a rocking chair or with a solid wooden eiffel base, The rocker was a better choice for my space because it added a different dynamic and some movement in my living room. I think it gives the area a bit more character and so far is the favorite seat for any company that comes over!

Ordered these rockers in black and they look fantastic! Most rocking chairs i've seen look old fashioned and are rather bulky and large, these are a great size and the design is ultra mod - thank you!
