The medium is the message

Providing just the right amount of give, this authentic Eames Molded Shell Chair has a deep seat pocket and waterfall seat edge to reduce pressure on the backs of thighs. It's crafted, in the U.S.A., to last.

Charles and Ray Eames realized their dream to create a single-shell form in 1950 by making their molded chairs of fiberglass. When the environmental risks of that material became known, the chairs were changed to polypropylene, which is 100% recyclable and has a pleasant matte texture. In 2013, Herman Miller safely brought back the fiberglass shell thanks to a new proprietary production process. Today’s fiberglass chair is made of 99% recyclable materials and covered by Herman Miller’s take-back program for environmentally sound recycling. Plus, it’s true to the original with its beloved variegated surface. Also making its debut in 2013 was the stunning Eames Molded Wood Chair, a longtime dream of the Eameses finally made possible by today’s revolutionary 3-D molding technology. The result is an elegant yet strong and durable beautiful wood shell.

The Molded Shell Chair is a celebration of the Eameses’ fascination with emerging materials. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.” This is an authentic Eames Chair by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.

Charles and Ray Eames

Charles and Ray Eames

Design is for living. That maxim shaped a widespread shift in design during the 1940s and '50s. 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. This husband-and-wife team's unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Sleek and simple. Beautifully functional.

Better than expected
Not only is the product beautiful and comfortable it exceeds my expectations as I could not see it before I purchased it.

This is not my first HM purchase and everything I have holds up well and provides years of service.

These chairs are really beautiful!

So, HM not only offers beautiful, functional and well made products but their customer service is superb! Always helpful, always friendly, always want to make the customer happy and always go above and beyond.

Thanks!

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).
