It was 1946. World War 2 had just ended. Ray and Charles Eames had grown bored with bent plywood and were busy playing with molded fiberglass furniture shells. Then in 1948 with the RAR, they got it right. The abbreviation “RAR” represented the manufacturing features that made up the Eames masterpiece. These features are the “Rocker height”, the fact that it is an “Armchair” and that it features a “Rocking base”. The rest is mid-century modern history.
