Product Overview

Eames Plastic Office Chair

The Eames Task Chair marries the beloved molded one-piece shell design—in side or armchair versions—with a five-star base for just-right stability and a height-adjustable, swivel-mounted seat and casters for mobility. The molded fiberglass of the original Eames Shell Chair—with all of its expressive surface variation—is once again available thanks to an environmentally friendly process. Along with the molded plastic version, it offers a customizable aesthetic; colors range from fresh to vintage pigments, available with or without full upholstery, or a seat pad. The Eames Task Chair also offers a choice of bent wire or molded wood side chair shells. Whatever options you choose, Eames Task Chairs are look-good, feel-good form following function at its agile best.

Design Story


    The Eames Shell Chair was born in 1950, a child of the visionary wife-and-husband design team, Ray and Charles Eames. The boundless creativity of these pioneers of modern furniture helped transform the home and office with form-fitting comfort, flexibility, and color.

    A timeless favorite, the Eames Shell Chair’s ongoing iterations affirm the Eamesian philosophy that “Design addresses itself to the need.” As the need for versatile, comfortable seating has changed over time, so has their iconic single-shell chair, with new materials and bases extending its utility. The need for stylish, expressive seating for offices—including home offices—inspired the original four-star base, added in 1953. With the development of a five-star base, the Eames Task Chair once again sets the side and armchair shells on casters for use as a desk chair.
