Designed by Charles and Ray Eames
The molded plastic shell of this Eames chair is 100 percent recyclable and lends a lovely matte texture to its iconic form. Set atop the 4-Leg Base, use it as a durable and sustainable dining chair, meeting chair, or guest chair.

Eames Molded Plastic Chairs
Charles and Ray Eames realized their first successful, single-shell form in 1950 with the Molded Fiberglass Chairs. However, when the environmental risks associated with fiberglass production became more widely understood, the decision was made to discontinue fiberglass shell production until a more suitable material could be found. In 2001, Herman Miller reintroduced the Molded Plastic Chair in polypropylene. In addition to being 100 percent recyclable, the polypropylene shell chair's subtle matte texture offers a soft tactility as well as notable durability.

Eames Molded Plastic Chairs are available as side chairs or armchairs, and in a choice of colors, including archival or new options. Armchair and side chair shells can be fully upholstered in a variety of textiles; side chair shells can be specified with an upholstered seat pad. A choice of bases rounds out your customization options.
Colorful Variety
Originally produced in only three neutral colors—greige, elephant-hide grey, and parchment—the chair is now available many colors that range from vibrant to subtle, and either chrome, white or black base.

Good for the Earth
Shells are made of polypropylene—which is 100 percent recyclable. The plating process used for the trivalent chrome finish reduces environmental and health issues associated with other forms of chrome plating.

Glide Options
Swiveling glides keep the four legs steady and level on uneven floors. The standard glide is also available with felt to protect hard-surface floors.

A classic piece of mid-century furniture. The first mass-produced plastic chair. And as stylish today as when it was designed in 1950.

A Work of Art that Works
True to the original, but now made with eco-friendly materials, the Eames molded plastic armchair is what it has always been—an art object for your home that is also comfortable, useful, and durable. The organic shapes and sophisticated lines of this chair work anywhere—in the dining area, living room, family room, home office.

Design Staying Power
As beloved today as when it was first introduced in 1950, the Eames molded plastic armchair features organic shapes and sleek lines. The first one-piece plastic chair offered without upholstery or other covering, it achieved a pervasive presence that proves the staying power of good design. It sits beautifully in many places in the home and in all kinds of decor.

Classic Comfort
Charles and Ray Eames believed that comfort was as important as looks. So comfort is built in. The shell seats have high, flexible backs, deep seat pockets, and waterfall front edges so you can sit comfortably even for extended periods.
