Additional Information

Description

Masters of materials.

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 shell 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.” This is an authentic chair by Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.



A cradle of comfort.

Providing just the right amount of give, each molded shell chair has a deep seat pocket and waterfall seat edge to keep you comfortable by reducing pressure on the backs of thighs. Informally known as “the Eames Eiffel” because of its striking Eiffel Tower base, this durable chair is built to last, but should you someday decide to part with it, the polypropylene shell is 100% recyclable.

  • A classic in continuous production since 1948.
  • This is the authentic Eames Chair from Herman Miller.
  • Nicknamed “the Eiffel” because of its tower-like base.

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 ...

Beautiful design
The Eames Molded Plastic Side Chair transforms my dining space like a breath of fresh air! The gentle curves, scale, and the light wire base complements a table without overwhelming the room. They are very light, maneuverable, and the scale comfortably fits tall and short people. Great chair and timeless design.

Added color to the collection
We already had a set of 4 molded plastic chairs in white and now added 2 orange ones for a splash of color. They look great in our dining room. 4 starts for quality may be a bit too harsh considering that these are very well made. But we had the little plastic foot come off one of our chairs and I had a to buy a replacement. Thankfully, they are available from many sources (and at many price levels).
