Eames Molded Plastic Armchair
Commonly referred to as Eiffel chairs, the Eames Molded Plastic Armchair and Side Chair (1948) were the first industrially manufactured plastic chairs. In creating these classic pieces, the Eameses honed two techniques with which they had been grappling for years: the use of a bent and welded wire base and a sculpted plastic shell seat. The results are supremely comfortable and timeless. Originally made with fiberglass-reinforced plastic, these chairs now take advantage of the benefits of more eco-friendly polypropylene. The molded shell seat has a high, flexible back and a deep seat pocket. The waterfall seat edge promotes comfortable seating for extended periods of time by reducing pressure on the backs of thighs. For residential and commercial use. Adjustable pod feet level on uneven surfaces. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller, Inc.
