Additional Information

Description

Charles and Ray Eames believed that “design is a method of action,” and they continually updated their work as new materials became available. Their Molded Plastic chairs were originally designed in metal and entered as a prototype in MoMA’s 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design. They then changed the material to fiberglass in 1950, and today the chairs are made of recyclable polypropylene. Charles was dissatisfied with the fiberglass, and it wasn’t until after his death that the matte finish he desired was achieved, thanks to advances in materials. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.” The deep seat pocket and waterfall seat edge keep you comfortable by reducing pressure on the backs of thighs. This is an authentic chair by Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.

Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and 1950s. It was a revolution of form, an exciting visual language that signaled a new age and a fresh start – and two of its prime movers were Charles and Ray Eames. The Eameses were a husband-and-wife team whose unique synergy led to a whole ...

Great Chairs
Love the look. We have had some QC issues. We purchased five in 2012. All five have broken in the same spot.

Really appreciated expedfited shipping of these beautiful chairs!
We enjoy sitting in these chairs everyday. I almost didn't order them because I was told I couldn't get them in time for a big open house we were hosting. One call to customer service and turned out that they were able to expedite my order and we received all the chairs we ordered before our party! We were so proud and happy to show them off. Thank you, Herman Miller!

The chairs have made the stage.
The Corporate Meeting we had designed/just finished was created using a subdued natural color palette and more of a masculine edge. Engaging, modern and comfortable were the words used by participants at the meeting. Creating side stages that were used for an Interview style of presentation were hosted with the Herman Miller red-orange molded plastic chair. Those chairs popped and demanded attention. The center stage hosted panels using the same HM molded plastic in the Sparrow color. Simplistic and amazing!
