Eames Rocking Shell Chair
Forward thinking — An experiment as much as an icon, the Eames Molded Shell Chair charts Charles and Ray Eameses' fascination with emerging materials. Originally designed in fiberglass, this comfortable, durable, timeless rocking chair is now available in recyclable plastic with a steel base and wood runners.


Modern rocks

Providing just the right amount of give, this authentic Eames Molded Shell Rocking 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. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.” Since 1955, every Herman Miller employee welcoming a baby into his or her life has been offered a version of this rocker or a $100 savings bond, and most have chosen the former. Fortunately, you don’t have to work at Herman Miller to bring home this bundle of joy. This is the authentic Eames Rocker by Herman Miller.

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.
