Have you always wanted a Herman Miller Eames Molded Plastic Chair (not a fiberglass kind), but thought that the color choices were too limited? Compared to the vintage fiberglass ones (or Modernica Case Study Fiberglass Shell Chairs), there were only five color choices – black, white, light blue, lime yellow, red orange. Well, great news – Herman Miller has just added the five new color choices to the Eames molded plastic chairs – aqua sky, greystone, java, sparrow and wafer. These chairs are now available with a large selection of base (four-legged, rocker, Eiffel, dowel, stacking), two shell types (simple shell or armchair), and a total of ten colors. Wow! So many combinations to choose from!
The Eames molded plastic chairs were first introduced in 1948. They were the first industrially mass produced one-piece plastic chairs. Originally, the shells were made with fiberglass-infused plastic. Today’s Eames molded plastic chairs are manufactured with more environmentally friendly materials, 100% recyclable polypropylene. The chairs are even more environmentally friendly now that they are made in the United States to reduce their manufacturing carbon footprint.
Charles and Ray Eames’ clean, simple, and enduring design have been loved by many since they were first introduced more than 60 years ago. Good design is timeless – The Eames molded plastic chairs perfectly fit in the category.
