A Simple, Gracious Form That Fits Any Body And Every Place

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.
