Product Description

So, you need a dining chair? This original orange Eames fiberglass side shell chair by Herman Miller on a used, newer, walnut DSW ‘Dowel’ base would be perfect. The orange shell has developed a rather unique patina with fantastic clearly seen visible fibers which are complimented by the dark walnut of the DSW base.

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.

Individual Characteristics

The shell may display a little more signs of age and use in the shape of a small crack in the fiberglass and the colour being a little more faded than in the images – further images are available upon request.

The ‘C’ with the star logo on the underside of the shell indicates this shell originates from Herman Miller’s Cincinnati factory.
