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.
