"Who would say that pleasure is not useful?" -Charles Eames

The molded plastic chairs are a flexible and comfortable seat with a variety of base options. Available in your choice of colors, which are permeated through the material so they remain vibrant even after years of hard use. The molded plastic seats are produced of ecologically friendly, recyclable polypropylene.

A landmark design from Charles and Ray Eames, the molded plastic chairs consist of clean, simple forms sculpted to cradle the body. As their popularity grew, the shells were combined with various base designs to fit a wider range of environments. The wood dowel base brings a softer aesthetic, while the crossed metal rods are distinctly Eames. Dowel legs are offered in maple and white ash with white nylon glides or ebony stained ash and walnut wood with black glides.

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."

Eames

Husband and wife team Charles & Ray Eames played a major role in the world of modern architecture, furniture design, graphic design, art and film. Charles and Ray designed prize winning furniture that expanded upon the wood molding inspiration of Alvar Aalto. Ray Eames began as an abstract expressionist painter and has a painting in the Whitney Museum permanent collection.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son in law buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father in law as 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 & Ray Eames the company produced legendary classics of industrial design.
