PRODUCT BOX SIZE
Fiberglass is a substance comprised of tiny glass threads, or fibers. Fiberglass materials are popular for their attributes of high strength compared to relatively light weight. Material: FRP (Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic), hand-made product, water proofed. Fiberglass has the advantage over glass because it transmits less heat. During the summer a fiberglass covered greenhouse requires less cooling than a glass greenhouse of the same size. Fiberglass with PVC is a durable, relatively lightweight material that resists damage from weather, ultraviolet radiation, and acid rain.
THE DESIGNER OF THE ORIGINAL
Eames, Charles (1907-1978)
American architect and designer, best known for his seminal formfitting designs for chairs. He studied architecture under Eliel Saarinen and in 1940 collaborated with Eero Saarinen in designing a chair that won first prize in the organic furniture competition sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Eames Lounge chair, with a molded plywood shell, foam-rubber padding, and innovative rubber-weld joints, unfortunately proved too expensive for mass manufacture, but Eames continued to pursue his goal of creating an artistically valid design that could also be produced by modern mass-production techniques.
