Eames Plastic Side Chair is a contemporary version of the legendary Fiberglass Chair. It was produced in collaboration with Zenith Plastics for the Museum of Modern Art in New York's Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition and was the first industrially manufactured plastic chair.

The Hopsak cover in 13 colours can be combined with the eight colours of the seat shell. Together with the base frames, this creates any number of individual possible combinations. On fully upholstered chairs, the upholstery is fixed to the shell with black or white piping.

Use the Vitra configurator for this design to explore the colour combinations available.
