With the Eames Molded Chair, the Eameses created a universal response to what everyone wants from a chair: a simple, gracious form that fits any body and every place. Thanks to a new, proprietary process of producing fiberglass-reinforced plastic, Herman Miller is once again able to produce the original 1950 Eames Molded Chair safely.
Material: Molded Fiberglass
19% Recycled content; 99% recyclable
'Preform' that Performs: To create preforms for the new Eames Molded Fiberglass Arm and Side Chairs, a "dry binder process" is used
With this technique, fiberglass strands, some of which melt at a lower temperature, are blown by a robot onto a screen in the shape of the chair shell
Heat is then applied, and enough strands melt so that the preform's shape remains intact, avoiding the harmful "wet glue" process used in traditional fiberglass fabrication
Greener Resin: By employing technology used mainly in the automotive and manufacturing industries, this new fiberglass resin boasts many environmental improvements
Monomer-free and processed without VOC (volatile organic compounds) or HAP (hazardous air pollutants) emissions, these resins eliminate the need for thermal oxidizers
Compared to the fiberglass resins used in the Eameses' original design, the new resin results in a safer work environment for employees

George Nelson laid out five tenets of bHerman Miller's/b design philosophy 50 years ago:
liWhat you make is important.
liDesign is an integral part of the business.
liThe product must be honest.
liYou decide what you will make.
liThere is a market for good design.
While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a bHerman Miller/b 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? bThe answer is Yes./b
