This gorgeous, vintage, original ochre Eames side shell for Herman Miller on used DSR base really is a fantastic version of the iconic chair. The distinctive colour has not been marred by time, retaining a strong, bold finish and sat on the black, newer, DSR base this chair works perfectly as a living or dining chair.
The shells were initially produced in 4 colours but with their success, more colours were made available. Ochre, especially like this excellent example, was introduced and proved to also be a success. Once Herman Miller took complete control of the production process, more colours were made available thus helping to establish the success the Eames shell chairs saw.
The shell is in fantastic vintage condition with no chips or dents, only natural wear expected with being nearly 50 years old. The bold colour has not faded over time.
The 'S' within the circle embossed on the underside of the shell indicates this chair is from Summit Plastics for Herman Miller.
