Herman Miller


Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1948.
By Herman Miller.

The unmistakable Eames Molded Plastic chair takes on a different life with each of its base offerings. The Dowel-Leg base brings a softer aesthetic to the Eames Molded Plastic Armchair. The maple dowel legs include crossed metal rods in Black Umber — distinctly Eames. The molded plastic shells are carefully manufactured using environmentally friendly, high-impact recyclable polypropylene and are dyed throughout so colors remain vibrant even after years of hard use. And today, the chairs are produced locally in Michigan by Herman Miller, just as the vintage chairs were. For extended comfort, the shell is connected to the base by rubber shock mounts. The dowel-leg base has maple legs with non-adjustable nylon glides. The Molded Plastic Armchair with Dowel-Leg Base is also offered in non-quick ship options: Eames® Molded Plastic Armchair with Dowel-Leg Base.

Charles + Ray Eames

Designer: Charles + Ray Eames

With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

In addition to his professional career, Mark has been an industrial design professor at Pratt Institute for 14 years. In his graduate furniture design class, students are responsible for the ideation, design, and execution of an actual piece of furniture. The emphasis of the course is to encourage students to develop their own individual point of view.
