Description

Product Description

This is a real rarity, an Eames side shell chair for Herman Miller in the most desirable and hardest to find true seafoam colour. A superb example of an absolute gem from the world of Eames.One of the original colours Charles and Ray used when producing these chairs, this style of chair needs little introduction. This colour dates back to the origin of these shells in 1952/53 and still remains to be a very popular, and much desirable shell to own, truly highlighting the versatility of these chairs.Original fiberglass shells are defined by their base colour which shows the vibrant fibers contained within the shell. This version of the Seafoam chair displays this perfectly. Herman Miller, with the design power of Alexander Girard, later introduced upholstered versions of the shells which were finished in either Girard’s own patterned fabrics or in vinyl.

Individual Characteristics

There are clear signs of general use around the shell’s side with the faded colour however that aids with the shells history. There are signs of dirt that has been ingrained int the fiberglass so a professional clean is advised. 

The shell is on a later, re-introduced oak DSW base which is in good used condition.

The crescent and star denotes the Cincinnati Milacron factory of origin.
