They also believed that their role as designers were that of grateful hosts catering to the needs of their guests.

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.
