eamesĀ® molded plastic armchair with low wire base

"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.

Among the prize winners of MoMA's 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design was the prototype of a one-piece shell chair designed by Charles and Ray Eames. Two years later, Herman Miller introduced Eames Molded Chairs to the world with a choice of five unique bases. Among them, but since lost to history, was the LAR -Low Armchair Rod Base- which converted the versatile single-shell armchair design into a low-set lounge height chair. The LAR base developed the popular name 'Cat's Cradle' and remains coveted by collectors today and is now once again available. The Eames Shell Chair with Low Wire Base supports all armchair shells, and is available upholstered, non-upholstered, or with a seat pad.

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."
