A gorgeous combination, this lavishly upholstered orange and blue checker original Eames and Herman Miller white side shell chair is finished in an updated Alexander Girard designed fabric which works effortlessly with the fibrous finish of the side shell itself and sitting on the used, newer, light oak DSW dowel base.
The upholstered versions of the Eames shells were designed with the help of the Eames’s great personal friend Alexander Girard, who became the head of textiles at Herman Miller and introduced the Eames’s to Herman Miller. Girard was meticulous when it came to his work, producing many various textile designs which were also used as wallpaper.
Herman Miller faithfully reintroduced the fiberglass shell and with it maintained the upholstered options for them. The options available are still numerous, available in various fabrics in various colours.
This is a great example of a classic piece. This particular piece is a great re-condition piece with no cuts, tears, cracks or dents.
The ‘S’ inside the circle indicates this shell originates from Herman Miller’s Summit Plastic’s factory.
