Objects of desire IV

The Eames Plastic
Side Chair is a contemp-
orary version of the legend-
ary 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.
Since the 1950s the organically shaped seat shell of the Plastic Side Chair has been combined with various bases and produced in the millions.

Need I say this is an object of great desire to me. I can easily visualize six of these around my superellipse dinner table... Oh, the little coathanger in the foreground brings a smile to my face whenever I see it. It's quite an affordable way to boost serotonin levels!
