The Hundreds x Modernica “CMYK” Fiberglass Arm Shell Rocker

We have not reported about The Hundreds in a while. This week they announce a fantastic new project that we have to show you though. The Los Angeles brand teamed up with Modernica on their iconic Fiberglass Arm Shell Rocker and gave it the “CMYK” color treatment. It is great seeing a brand from our world work on such an iconic piece of furniture.

“In 1949, prolific Modernist designers Charles and Ray Eames introduced their fiberglass Case Study chairs, propelling the idea of accessible, mass designed furniture for everyone. Los Angeles-based Modernica has the distinction of being the only manufacturer capable of producing the Case Study Fiberglass Shell Chairs under the Eames’ intended process. On the chair’s timeless design, owner Jay Novak says, “This was Eames. It’s strictly there for its function. And as it turns out, it’s also beautiful. But that’s the way it goes. You make something that functions perfectly? Usually, it comes out very, very attractive.” This is the first time that Modernica has produced a true black shell.”

The Hundreds x Modernica “CMYK” Fiberglass Arm Shell Rocker features a black shell, cyan wire, and magenta and yellow rockers, available in limited quantities at $499 through The Hundreds online store.
