Plastic reinforced with fiberglass is often used in furniture from the late 1940s, this is seen in the work of Eero Saarinen and Charles Eames. When Eero Saarinen developed his Tulip Chair in 1956, he had hoped soon to be able to fully produce this model from plastic. His desire for a fully plastic chair was shared by many designers.
It took until 1966 for Helmut Bätzner to present the first fully plastic chair. In 1966 is was shown at the Cologne Furniture Fair.
