Eames Molded Fiberglass Side Chair with Dowel Base
More than 60 years after its first debut, the Molded Fiberglass Side Chair with Dowel Base has returned with a new, more eco-friendly presence. When Charles & Ray Eames designed their first Molded Fiberglass Shell Chairs in 1950, they designed more than a chair. They designed a full experience: chairs that would be welcoming, versatile and would stand the test of time. Unveiled at NeoCon 2013, the highly anticipated, revamped Eames Fiberglass Chairs are produced in a new material, from a proprietary process that works for the planet while honoring the legacy of the original Eames' designs. The Side Chair with Dowel Base is offered in a new fiberglass finish featuring the same surface striation that has attracted avid vintage collectors for decades. And Herman Miller has even reformulated color pigments to reproduce the series' original color options from the 1950s. The Fiberglass Chairs remain as relevant today as when originally introduced, inspiring applications that complement a variety of spaces.
