The molded chair concept was originally created as a prototype for MoMA's International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design and introduced in 1948. The design was the result of years of experimentation with molded forms as a potential medium in mass-market furniture construction. The organic shapes the medium could produce were something fresh and new, were well suited to form-fitting comfort and could be made affordable. The original "shell chairs" (which included the Molded Fiberglass Wire-Base Armchair aka DFAR) became 20th century icons, whose popularity has only grown well into the 21st century.
Inmod's Molded Fiberglass Arm Chair is an accurate reproduction that stays true to the original shell chair designs and to their styling, quality and specifications. It is stocked in its most popular configurations and can be ordered in your choice of fiberglass color, base color and seat finish (matte or glossy).

Its elegant translucent finish amicably reveals and reflects its environment while its refractive qualities accentuate the beauty of its own form.

Legendary husband and wife design team Charles & Ray believed that functional modern design should be available to the masses. They also believed that their role as designers were that of grateful hosts catering to the needs of their guests. Having experimented with molded forms for years, Charles & Ray were keenly aware that the organic shapes achievable offered something new in the furniture industry. Not only could they be mass-produced, but the forms themselves offered something entirely new in design and function. Originally molded from fiberglass, and plastic later, Charles & Ray's Molded Plastic Dowel-Leg Armchair (aka DAW and "shell chair") became a 20th century icon and has embedded itself into the design culture of the 21st century.

In 1934, Xavier Pauchard designed what would become the quintessential industrial cafe chair, the Marais A Chair (manufactured by Tolix), and what was originally introduced into Parisian cafes, restaurants and offices, over time became one of the most recognized icons in 20th century mainstream design worldwide. Xavier passed away in 1948, and his son Jean, following in his footsteps, designed the Marais A56 (named for the year he designed it). While his father brought galvanized steel furniture manufacturing to France decades before, through an intricate process comprised of 100 manual operations, Jean's creation was an armchair to compliment his father's. Over 80 years after the introduction of the Marais concept, both chairs have enjoyed worldwide recognition and a recent growth in popularity, thanks to a global revival of appreciation in industrial design & decor. If the times prove one thing, it's that the Marais Chairs are timeless.
In 1948 debuted a molded chair concept at MoMA's International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design.

Whether the Pauchards knew it or not, the Marais family of seating would go on to become synonymous with industrial design and arguably become the most recognized of metal cafe chairs worldwide.
