A wonderfully refurbished vintage greige Eames arm shell by Herman Miller has been finished in original Alexander Girard orange and blue checker fabric. The shell sits on a used, newer, RAR rocking base whose dark wood tone works effortlessly with the colour of the shell.
The shell chair saw much success mainly through its adaptability and almost indestructible design. The introduction of a range of colours and, a little later on, upholstered options, ensured their popularity grew. This popularity maintained until the 80s, but since then has seen a resurgence.
This is a great example of a very unique finish. The greige shell is in good vintage condition with no cracks or dents and the renewed fabric is in good condition too with no cuts or tears.
The ‘S’ in the circle indicates the shell was produced in the Summit Plastic’s factory used by Herman Miller.
