Charles and Ray Eames realised their first successful, single-shell form in 1950 with the Moulded Fibreglass Chairs. However, when the environmental risks associated with fibreglass production became more widely understood, the decision was made to discontinue fibreglass shell production until a more suitable material could be found. In 2001, Herman Miller reintroduced the Moulded Plastic Chair in polypropylene. In addition to being 100% recyclable, the polypropylene shell chair's subtle matt texture offers a soft tactility as well as notable durability.
Eames Moulded Plastic Chairs are available as side chairs or armchairs, and in a choice of colours, including archival or new options. Armchair and side chair shells can be fully upholstered in a variety of textiles; side chair shells can be specified with an upholstered seat pad. A choice of bases rounds out your customisation options.
Charles Eames famously said: “The role of the designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests.” With the moulded plastic, fibreglass and wood shell chairs, as well as the wire chair, Charles and Ray Eames created a universal response to what everyone wants from a chair: a simple, gracious form that fits any body and every place.
