Eames® Molded Fiberglass Stool With Seat Pad

eames® molded fiberglass stool with seat pad

eames® molded fiberglass stool with seat pad

Design Charles & Ray Eames®
Molded fiberglass, metal legs, upholstery
Made by Herman Miller®

The familiar form of the Eames Molded Fiberglass shell sits atop a 4-leg base design that makes it an ideal seating option at bar- or counter-height surfaces. Thanks to advances in safe fiberglass composition, the Eames' distinctive single-shell form is safely produced by means of a less volatile, monomer-free "dry bind" process. The process for making shells and the nature of fiberglass give each shell unique character traits that may include some surface cavities, areas of lighter or darker color, or faint circular shadows where stool base is attached to shell.

With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

The Eames stools represent the evolution of Charles and Ray Eames' iterative process, which continually pushed the boundaries of what a single-shell chair could be. The seat and back are formed of a single piece of molded fiberglass with waterfall edges. The Eames fiberglass stool is offered in a choice of base colors and the shell can be specified in a variety of archival colors. The fiberglass shell can also be upholstered in an array of textiles. Black and chrome 4-leg bases are provided with black glides while the white 4-leg base has white glides. The upholstered seat pad comes affixed to the Eames molded shell and available in a variety of fabric or leather upholstery options.

Eames

Husband and wife team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames played a major role in the world of modern architecture and furniture, as well as working in industrial and graphic design, fine art, and film. Charles completed two years of study at Washington University in St. Louis. With his design and life partner Ray, he designed prize-winning furniture that expanded upon the wood molding techniques of Alvar Aalto. Ray-Bernice Alexandra Kaiser Eames began as an abstract expressionist painter, having graduated from Bennett Women’s College in Millbrook, NY and later studying under Hans Hoffman while living in New York City. She co-founded the American Abstract Artists and has a painting in the Whitney museum’s permanent collection.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with modern furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
