RM58 Armchair Classic Glossy Red by VzorBrand: VZOR Ean: 0
Mid-century designer chair.
A version of the iconic armchair by Roman Modzelewski, RM58 Classic, which faithfully follows the historical 1958 design, is manufactured manually at a shipyard using yacht and boat production technologies.
The armchairs are made using modern composites that are the contemporary equivalents of polyester and glass laminates used by Modzelewski.
To ensure exceptional durability, the armchair is covered with a coloured resin layer (gelcoat) that guarantees long use.
About the RM58:
The 1958 prototype of glass and polyester laminate was a pioneer use of this material in Poland, and from the formal point of view it was an example of a fully
formed, homogeneous organic seat shell, unique on a global scale.
One of the original armchairs was purchased by London’s Victoria & Albert Museum for its world design collection. The armchair was presented by V&A at its exhibition “Cold War Modern: Design 1945-1970” devoted to modern design, architecture, film and pop culture created during the Cold War on both sides of the Iron Curtain.
The armchair was also among the items at the exhibition of the National Museum in Warsaw entitled “We Want to Be Modern. Polish Design 1955-1968” which
presented Polish design icons. Two original RM58 armchairs are also part of the permanent collection of the Modern Design Centre of the National Museum in
After more than half a century since its creation, the armchair by Roman Modzelewski debuted again.
The production of the RM58 armchair using a new material and industrial technologies allowed to avoid constraints related to craft manufacturing and to
offer a product with fixed quality parameters which can be produced fast and in large batches.
