Herman Miller ® Eames DAR - Molded Plastic Arm Chair with Wire Base

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

Beverly from Manhattan Beach, CA– Verified Buyer

I bought 2 chairs to compliment our dining room, but they also go with our game table and can be brought out on the patio when a couple of extra chairs are needed. They are light weight enough to move easily, but sturdy enough for a large adult. The Eames customer service is amazing, when I needed to replace one of the felt footpads I gave the the number off the bottom of the chair and it was Fed Ex-ed, they already had all my information.

great chair

Jayashree 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.

A classic.

Karen from Voorheesville, NY– Verified Buyer

You can't go wrong with classic mid century modern. We are using this for an office chair. The office also doubles as a reading area and this works great. We slung a sheepskin over it, and it is quite cozy for reading or working.

Versatile - more than a dining room chair

G from New York, NY– Verified Buyer– Top 50 Reviewer

This Eames chair is a peacock blue (aqua) that was in perfect condition on arrival. Sturdy yet fine lines. Very comfortable and roomy- more than it looks.

Fun modern classic adds pop of color

Susan from Glencoe, IL– Verified Buyer

Great desk chair. Adds a pop of color and style. Comfortable. Arm height low enough to fit under desk. Seat height a little low but still works.

Herman Miller ® began in 1923 as a manufacturer of traditional residential furniture, became a leader in "modern" furniture in the 1930s and 1940s; developed lasting ties through the 1950s with legendary industrial designers who led the company in new directions; transformed the office furniture industry with the first panel system in the 1960s; invented and refined ergonomic work seating in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; reinvented the geometry of systems furniture in 2000, and is today the second largest office furniture company with customers and locations around the world.

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.
