eames molded wood side chair with task base

Design Charles & Ray Eames, 1953
Molded wood, metal frame, optional seat pad
Made by Herman Miller

The Eames molded side chair in molded wood can be configured in a wide variety of base options. Offered without upholstery or with an array of trim, finely tailored Hopsak fabrics designed by Alexander Girard, Herman Miller's Textile Director from 1952 to 1973, round out the collection of shell customization options.

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." With the molded plastic, fiberglass, and wood shell chairs -as well as the wire chair- the Eames' have created a universal response to what everyone wants from a chair: a simple, gracious form that fits any body and every place.

The Eames Task chair is an extension of the existing Eames Shell Chair Family, offering select shell and upholstery combinations on a five-star base. The arm shells are a single-piece molded wood shell with waterfall edges and optional seat cushion. Shell color and upholstery options mirror the existing Eames Molded wood chair portfolio. Upholstery with textiles or leather for indoor use only. Optional seat pad comes affixed to the molded shell.

The Eames Task chair features a five star base with casters (wheels). Pneumatic height adjustment up to five inches. Ships assembled.

The primary need of the human being was an essential component of every design for Eames. They believed a design to be successful when it catered to how people are similar to one another instead of addressing idiosyncrasies, benefitting the greatest number of people.
Herman Miller is synonymous with “modern” furniture. Creative director George Nelson recruited contemporaries Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard and Noguchi to create a legendary furniture collection.
