Eames Molded Fiberglass Side Chair, Wire Base
from Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames

At A Glance: The Eames Molded Fiberglass Side Chair with Wire Base is an iconic piece of American design history. While you've often seen the side chair in school rooms and auditoriums, the Eiffel-Tower base version is in its element in the home. Mid-century authenticity has never been more accessible. Using a new process for creating fiberglass without the harmful glues of the past, Herman Miller has returned the Shell Chairs to their heritage. The Eames' would be pleased.

What's To Like:

  • Fiberglass is back, and we're glad. Its unique texture and surface striations make the Shell Chairs one of Herman Miller's all-time hits. It's about time they figured out an environmentally responsible way to manufacture them!
  • Classic design. The Molded Fiberglass Side Chair is recognizable anytime, anyplace - for good reason.
  • Intricate, architectural wire Eiffel Tower base. The base this chair sits upon is one of our favorites for its striking quality.
  • The Shell Chairs - all of them - were among the first to have comfort as a priority during the design process. Waterfall seat edges and a curvy seat pocket give this chair an easygoing sit.

What's Not to Like:

  • There is practically no give in the molded fiberglass, so attempting to use this chair as a recliner wouldn't be a good idea. 

The Bottom Line: 
Original design, original comfort, original character. The Eames Molded Fiberglass Side Chair's got them in spades. With all the new colors in Herman Miller's Palette, you'll have a great time choosing what vibe you want your chair to create.

Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. These molded fiberglass side chairs are true to the originals and are fully authentic, with updated materials to meet environmental requirements. Their enduring forms and quality construction make them comfortable, durable performers.
