The Daily Find: Vitra RAR Rocking Chair
For decades we’ve seen designers push the envelope with fashion, art, cars, etc and now we get to see the same innovation in the world of furniture. The extremely modern furniture line Vitra has developed a rocking chair that is truly one of a kind. The Swiss company, which was founded in the 1950’s has certainly come along way and is currently ahead
of the curve when it comes to conceptualization and rarity.
The RAR Rocking chair is unlike any rocking chair I have ever seen. The $690 RAR (Rocking Armchair Rod Base) is the rocking chair within the famous collection of Vitra’s Eames Plastic Armchairs. Their organically shaped seat shells made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic were later combined with various different bases, such as RAR’s rockers and manufactured in their millions. In their latest version made of polypropylene the Armchairs now offer even greater sitting comfort. The Eames Plastic Armchair RAR is available in the colors ocean, mauve grey, cream, stone white and mustard.
