MoMA Exclusive: An Eastern European design icon from 1958, the RM58 Classic Chair was revolutionary for being one of the earliest examples of polyester-glass laminate furniture. In its original design by Roman Modzelewski, the RM58 is also manufactured exactly as the original—manually at a shipyard using yacht and boat production technologies. It’s sealed with a synthetic colored resin that guarantees extended longevity. Never serially produced until now, the RM58 is handmade in Poland from the original material. The RM58 Classic Chair is a comfortable lounge chair for your living space or office which doubles as a show-stopping sculpture. The RM58 Classic Chair comes in tomato red and has a 310lb weight limit.
