52 New Colors in 52 Weeks: Maize Fiberglass Shell Chairs


With the changing of the leaves comes freshly-harvested corn, gourds, winter squash, pumpkins and everything that is deliciously yellow and orange. Today we celebrate the harvest with our newest shade of autumn yellow, Maize. The Maize Fiberglass Chair is a muted shade of yellow that delivers a warm, comfortable feel to understated and refined palates.


Bring the harvest into your home when you visit our Los Angeles Showroom or order the Maize Shell Chair online. Get a feel for this subtle shade below and on the Maize Pinterest Board.

In the Press: eVolo Visits the Modernica Factory

Modernica was honored to host eVolo Architecture Magazine at our Los Angeles facility for a full factory tour. The eVolo team investigated the manufacturing techniques and historical processes that make our products unique. We were thrilled when the print magazine came out this month with a multi-page feature on our company. Here are a few highlights from the article:

Architecture Magazine

“Modernica started out of the passion of Frank and Jay Novak for mid-century design after purchasing 12,000 discarded Eames fiberglass shell chairs from Century Plastics in 1989 after Herman Miller discounted the line – they also purchased all the original equipment in 2010.

What started as a small operation twenty-five years ago has grown into a very successful company that sells more than 30,000 fiberglass chairs per year, among many other mid-century-inspired furniture and lamps. What makes them relevant is their attention to detail in every piece produced. This is possible because their factory operates like a series of European workshops – small teams of five to ten people that specialize in a part of the process. The workshops are distinct families, each with their own schedule, rhythm, and vibe; we refer to them as such because the atmosphere was that of a family reunion.”   – Carlo Aiello, Editor in Chief of eVolo Magazine
