Charles and Ray Eames designed products to last a lifetime, a fact evident in the Eames molded plastic chair. In production for nearly 60 years, the chair has been a mainstay of town halls, school cafeterias, and other public venues for its ability to withstand the rough and tumble of daily use.
Made from injection-molded polypropylene—the same recyclable plastic used in soda bottles and kid’s toys—the material of today’s molded plastic chair is nearly indestructible. And polypropylene is naturally flexible. It moves with the sitter, making for a comfortable seat. But if accidentally knocked over, the seat bounces back unscathed. No chance of cracking, chipping, or breaking. A perfect choice for an outdoor café or rowdy pediatrician’s waiting room.
