The marketplace for original Eames Trollies (Eames Dolly), an essential Herman Miller accessory for the DSS stacking chairs.
Charles Eames was credited with some insightful quotations during his working career as a designer, architect, film maker and artist. Whilst It may not be obvious to refer to his famous “The details are not the details, they make the design” quotation for the Eames Trollies (also known as Eames Dollies) that is exactly what we must do. It wasn’t just enough for Charles and Ray Eames to add the hugely successful DSS stacking chairs to their portfolio but to delve much further into the very core reason of what and how they would be used. These details manifested into their hugely successful designs are what stood them out from the rest. The Eames Trollies and Dollies could be utilized to easily stack 15 or 30 chairs and quickly wheel them away with an effortless canter. They proved therefore an extension of the greatness of the stacking chair design itself.
Despite the huge number of scholastic stacking chairs sold for a variety of applications from colleges to hospitals, schools to stadiums, the dollies rarely show up in the secondary market. It is likely they get overlooked and perhaps, through time, lost or destroyed. When they do become available for sale, you will find them here within the Eames Marketplace.
