Even though it was initially designed as a nursery chair it very soon became a popular living room chair. It was received very well and pretty soon became part of mainstream indoor furniture. The Rocker was a contribution to the “Low Cost Furniture Design” competition of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Its lightweight frame, minimalistic design and originally low price made the Eames Rocking Chair an instant success just like many other Eames creations. They were the first chairs ever to be mass produced.
The Eames duo worked without resting. Their creative work is versatile. Whatever the married couple put their interest in was planned with perfectionism and into every detail. Their Eames Rocking Chair RAR is durable and functional. The functionality of the designs was more important than its aesthetics. Nevertheless their designs are stunning and timeless. It is hard to believe that the iconic design of the Eames Rocker originated in 1948. The modernity of the chair is still obvious even though the chair is almost 70 years old.
