Eames RAR, “Elefant grey”, first edition

Rare first edition of the RAR* armchair by Ray & Charles Eames;

Produced by Herman Miller / Zenith Plastic between 1950 and 1954 in Gardena, California, manufacturer’s label under the seat.

First edition also called “Rope Edge due to the presence of rope at the edge of the fibreglass shell. Manufacturing process limited to the first edition, later abandoned;

“Elefant grey” colour, the chair has developed a unique patina over 70 years. The fibreglass is particularly visible.

A rare piece of museum quality!  We are proud to present this set of Eames armchairs in their first edition and in four of the six colours originally produced, from the same private Swiss collection!
