A striking example of an original Herman Miller Black Eames fiberglass shell dining chair on a used, newer, walnut DSW dowel base makes an iconic design piece! The bold combination of black shell on dark wood base creates a fantastic example of this chair which will make a great addition to any household environment.
The Eames shell series chairs really do not need any introduction. With early prototypes beginning in the late 1940's, production began on the Eames' dream of 'chairs for the masses' in 1950 with the arm and then the sides later in 1952/53. The original and vintage fiberglass chairs were so versatile and so modern that they only increase in popularity as the years go by.
Fiberglass originals always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. Upholstered version were introduced by Herman Miller a little later on using fabrics and textiles designed by the esteemed designer Alexander Girard.
With its bold colour, this chair would make a great statement piece for your chosen location. This rarely used piece has barely seen sunlight as the distinct lack of marks on the shell.
The 'S' within the circle logo dictates the shell was made between 1959-1989 by Summit Plastics.
