I bought an Eames plastic side chair with the Eifel base on eBay and the light blue shell has the Vitra imprint (in keeping with the original auction ad), so the shell is right. However, the very sturdy, beautifully made Eifel base is not automatically real or original. it probably is, but none of the bases have any marks, so it could’ve been a marriage. Remember how I used to have a fake Eames lounge chair? Most modern knock-offs look more like the originals because they’ve gotten more ballsy about directly copying both the style and the engineering of the original chair. The bond between the shockmount and the shell fails on one side, putting the pressure of all his weight on the remaining side. When Ray and Charles Eames’ classic molded side chair was first produced, in 1951, it was one of the first industrially-manufactured plastic chairs on the market. This original set of pink bikini chairs with Eiffel bottoms is also great.
The truth is that buying original, protein furniture is EXPENSIVE and, particularly now, not everyone is fabulously wealthy and can afford everything they want or need. This Eiffel chair is very similar to the Eames molded plastic side chair, but runs 170 as opposed to 250. The Barcelona chair was designed in collaboration between Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and his partner and companion Lilly Reich in 1929 for the German Pavilion at the Barcelona International Exhibition. Knoll modified Mies’ design fairly significantly making today’s chairs very different from the original thrones. I purchased a MR side chair that does not have the Knoll name or MR signature on the frame, but it does have a visibly old Knoll label on the bottom of the seat. Identifying an authentic piece designed by Charles and Ray Eames can be tricky. But because their designs were so widely copied, recognizing an original and collectible piece can be tricky. Objects made with molded fiberglass, like the famous bucket and shell chairs mid-century furniture collectors clamor to own, often have decals bearing the name Zenith Plastics still intact.
