About the Designer
Charles & Ray Eames Charles & Ray Eames United States 

Charles Ormond Eames, Jr (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" (née Kaiser) Eames (1912–1988) were American designers, who worked in and made major contributions to modern architecture and furniture. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art and film.

Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. Available in side and armchair versions, Today's Molded Plastic Chairs are true to the originals and are fully authentic, with updated materials to meet environmental requirements.

Charles and Ray Eames, always interested in new materials, saw in plastic the chance to form organic seat shells that conform to the body’s shape. The enduring forms and quality construction make the Molded Plastic Chairs - available here with a classic Eames wire base - comfortable, durable performers.

The Design:
  • New materials, especially those that held promise for doing more with less, fascinated Charles and Ray Eames throughout their careers. Their fascination led to inventive modern furniture, such as the Molded Plastic Chair. Designed in 1948, it was the first plastic chair to be mass produced
  • The current models look exactly the same as the originals. They remain unupholstered, in keeping with the Eameses requirement that materials be expressed honestly and unselfconsciously. In fact, these were the first one-piece plastic chairs to be left uncovered
  • At the same time, the chairs are better than ever. For example, the shell is now manufactured using more environmentally friendly, high-impact plastic
Features at a Glance:
  • Landmark Design
    • Organic shape
    • Clean, simple form sculpted to fit the body
    • First presented at the Museum of Modern Art in 1948, the chairs have achieved a pervasive presence that proves the staying power of good design
    • Today's recreation looks the same as the original
    • Classic Eames wire base
    Smart Construction
    • Durable design, even in public spaces
    • Many uses – in the home, office, café, reception area, or training room
    Thoughtful Engineering
    • Designed for minimum environmental impact
    • Shells are recyclable polypropylene
    • Shell is dyed throughout so colors remain vibrant even after years of hard use
    • Rubber shock mounts where shell meets the base provide extended comfort
    • Height: 31.125"
    • Width: 18.5”
    • Depth: 22"
    • Seat Height: 17.5”

great chair

 from Atlanta, GA– Verified Buyer

I have been wanting these chairs for a while so I couldn't resist when I saw these open box. Very comfortable and stylish! Easy to move around the house- I suspect I will continue to find new places for them.
The blue is a little duller than pictured, but still nice.

 from Glencoe, IL– Verified Buyer

Pleased with purchase

 from Philadelphia

Very well made and comfortable. I'm using them as kitchen chairs. Good choice of colors. Delivery was made when promised.

Was this helpful? Yes / No

Another fine Eames piece!

 from Danville, CA– Verified Buyer

I gave this piece 4 stars due to the fact that the plastic texture of the new chair didn't entirely match my previously purchased DAR. I expect American made products to be of superior quality, and I am proud of the facts that Americans still make some of the best products in the world.

Fun, funky and functional

 from Colleyville, TX– Verified Buyer

The aqua sky color (which is paler than I was expecting) took a little getting used to but these chairs have won my family over, since we spent so much time in our kitchen. Well built and comfy—though I may add some round pads later. I ordered four and liked them so well I ordered two more! Now Im completely repainting my mid century home around this color scheme.

  • Design is an integral part of the business.
  • The product must be honest.
  • You decide what you will make.
  • There is a market for good design.

While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a Herman Miller product has remained constant: Does it truly solve a problem that people care about in a way that improves upon other solutions, or pioneers a new and better answer altogether? The answer is Yes.
