Eames® Molded Plastic Stool

eames® molded plastic stool

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

Charles and Ray Eames' career-long exploration of the chair as a single-shell form yielded numerous expressions of this idea, beginning in 1950 with the Molded Fiberglass Chairs. When the environmental risks associated with fiberglass production were realized, the Molded Fiberglass Chair was discontinued. In 2004, Herman Miller introduced the Molded Plastic Chair in recyclable polypropylene. The Eames Molded Plastic Stool was introduced in 2015. Atop a 4-leg bar- or counter-height base, the durable polypropylene shells look inviting and stylish everywhere they are used, from cafés and bistros to breakfast nooks and break rooms.

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 stool in its plastic iteration is made from recycled polypropylene. The seat and back are formed of a single piece of molded plastic with waterfall edges and a flexible back. Beyond the growing selection of plastic shell colors, Eames Molded Plastic Stools are also available upholstered. A choice of several base colors rounds out your customization 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.
