Good Questions: Who Made Fiberglass "Wing Chairs"?

Hello AT,

I've scoured the internet for a clue about the origins of this chair, but have turned up empty handed.

Although it obviously owes a debt to the Eames "Case Study Fiberglass Armchair", retrospectives on the Eames / Herman Miller era make no mention of a "wing chair". I suspect that it's just a later interpretation "inspired by" the Eames chairs.

So, the questions are: Any knowledge of mid-century production of a fiberglass "wing chair"? Were there many companies producing Herman Miller "kockoffs"? Thanks! K
