Vitra manufactures the Fiberglass Chairs (1950) by Charles and Ray Eames in several of the early colours. Fibreglass owes its charm to an irregular surface, which appears almost like a natural material thanks to its clearly visible fibres.
- Seat shell: dyed-through, glass-fibre reinforced polyester (fibreglass). Just like the earliest models, today's fibreglass shells are also slightly transparent in some colours.
- RAR base: wire base with cross struts, solid maple runners. (RAR = Rocking Armchair Rod Base)
- Origin of wood: maple (Acer platanoides) from Western Europe and/or Poland.
