In 1948 debuted a molded chair concept at MoMA's International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design. The result of much experimentation with molded forms for years, its capabilities offered fresh new design and great value. The organic shapes the medium allowed for were well-suited for mass-production, could be made affordably and could offer form-fitting comfort. The Molded Fiberglass Dowel-Leg Armchair (DFAW) became an instant hit and an icon of the 20th and 21st centuries.

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.
