Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1950. Reissued in 2014.
By Herman Miller.
More than 60 years after its first debut, the Upholstered Fiberglass Armchair with Wire Base has returned with a new, more eco-friendly presence. When Charles & Ray Eames designed their first Molded Fiberglass Shell Chairs in 1950, they designed more than a chair. They designed a full experience: chairs that would be welcoming, versatile and would stand the test of time. Unveiled at NeoCon 2013, the highly anticipated, revamped Eames Fiberglass Chairs are produced in a new material, from a proprietary process that works for the planet while honoring the legacy of the original Eames' designs. The Upholstered Armchair with Wire Base is offered in a new fiberglass finish featuring the same surface striation that has attracted avid vintage collectors for decades. It is available in reformulated color pigments reproducing the series' original color options from the 1950s, and can be upholstered in a selection of finely tailored Hopsak fabrics designed by Alexander Girard.
- Seat and back are formed of a single piece of molded fiberglass with arms and waterfall edges
- Updated design now layers on supportive foam padding using a safer, greener adhesive that allows for easier disassembly when the chair is ready to be reupholstered or recycled
- Available in a range of fiberglass Color, contrasting Edge Trim and Hopsak fabric options
- Available with Glide options
- Produced with a fully revamped manufacturing process that translates to a fiberglass material constructed in a less volatile, monomer-free "dry bind" process
- Fiberglass features vintage reformulated color pigments and surface striation indicative of the material
- Chairs up to 98% recyclable at the end of their useful life
- All chairs can be recycled through the Herman Miller Take Back Program
- Backed by Herman Miller's 5 Year Warranty
- GREENGUARD® Gold Certified
Designer: Charles + Ray Eames
A chair that looked like a potato chip. Another that resembled a "well-used first baseman's mitt." A folding screen that rippled...
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.View other products by Charles + Ray Eames
