Designed in 1950. Reissued in 2014.

More than 60 years after its first debut, the Upholstered Fiberglass Side Chair with Dowel 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 Side Chair with Dowel 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.
