Product Description

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

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 shells 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 and the one being slightly more salmon than the other – further images are available upon request.

The ‘C’ with the star logo on the underside of the shells indicate these shells originate from Herman Miller’s Cincinnati factory.
