This chair was designed for the La Fonda del Sol restaurant in New York’s Time & Life building by Charles and Ray Eames. Charles and Ray Eames were friends of Alexander Girard who designed everything for this restaurant (except the chairs) and were asked to design the ‘La Fonda’ chairs. They were similar to the Eames fiberglass shell chair, but Girard requested that they be lower, so that the tables could be seen.
This chair was produced in Europe by Fehlbaum. Fehlbaum became Vitra. Original sticker under the seating. Original green upholstery in very good condition. One spot that is a bit lighter. Frame is in very good condition.
