Product Story: A landmark design from Charles and Ray Eames, the molded plastic chairs consist of clean, simple forms sculpted to cradle the body. The Eameses adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to produce this classic design - the first industrially manufactured plastic chairs. Today's chairs are true to the originals, with updated, eco-friendly materials. Their enduring forms and quality construction make them comfortable, durable performers.
Design Staying Power: As beloved today as they were when first introduced in 1948, the Eames molded plastic chairs feature organic shapes and sleek lines. These were the first one-piece plastic chairs offered without upholstery or other covering. And they remain that way, in keeping with the designers' appreciation of honest materials. The chairs have achieved a pervasive presence that proves the staying power of good design. They sit beautifully in homes and offices and in all kinds of decors.
Classic Comfort: Charles and Ray Eames believed that comfort was as important as looks. So the molded plastic chairs have comfort built in. The shell seats have high, flexible backs, deep seat pockets, and waterfall front edges so you can sit comfortably even for extended periods. The shell is connected to the base by rubber shock mounts, for additional cushioned contact. Adjustable glides keep the chair steady and level on uneven floors. The standard glide is available with felt to protect hard-surface floor.
Earth-Friendly: The original chairs were made of fiberglass-infused plastic. We now use a more ecologically supportable material, recyclable polypropylene, for the shells.
