A much coveted original Herman Miller lemon yellow Eames fiberglass side shell chair is always popular since they work effortlessly with any interior décor. This particular top is invigorated by the dark maple DSW base it is sat upon. One of the original colour choices for the shells, yellow is perhaps slightly more common than the elephant grey and seafoam colours but this does not inhibit its popularity.
The side variant of the iconic shell chairs was the second version to be produced and was done so in 1952/53. The arm shell was the first one to be produced in 1950 from the combined force of Zenith Plastics and Herman Miller.
This particular shell has retained its colour remarkably well considering their tendency to fade over time. There are some age related marks to the chair, expected with its age and mostly around the edges.
There is a stamp on the underside of the shell which is a summit prime stamp which indicates the shell is from 1959.
