Eames® Molded Plastic Side Chair Wire Base

Starting From

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller®
Modern Living — In the 1950s, the Eames molded shell changed everything about what a chair could be - sculptural, practical, mass-produced. Now in recyclable polypropylene, this staple of modern living fits every body and any space.

Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to produce their classic shell chair’s simple, gracious form. In 2001, continuing the Eames’ design ethos of continual, iterative advancements, Herman Miller reintroduced the original Eames Molded Shell Chair (1950) in a durable, 100 percent recyclable polypropylene. In 2022, we’ve enhanced it once more by crafting select recycled chairs with 100 percent post-industrial recycled plastic. The subtle matte texture of the re-engineered plastic shell maintains the soft tactility of the original design, available in your choice of vintage and contemporary colours, with three leg materials and styles and levelling floor glides.

  • This is an authentic Herman Miller Eames Molded Shell Chair, verified by an authenticity certificate included in every order.
  • A simple, beautiful, classic form that looks great in any setting.
  • Comfortable waterfall seat edge reduces pressure on thighs.
  • Recycled chairs are made with 100% post-industrial recycled plastic.
  • Available in 2 million configurations, with an extensive range of shell, base, colour, upholstery, and finish options.
