Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Armchair, 4-Leg Base
from Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames

The Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Armchair with 4-Leg Base is a bigger, more comfortable version of the landmark Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Side Chair. 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! While you've often seen the side chair in school rooms and auditoriums, the armchair is a bit more substantial and supportive. 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.

Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. These molded fiberglass armchairs 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.

Landmark Design

      • Organic shapes. A clean, simple form sculpted to fit the body; first presented at the Museum of Modern Art in 1948.
      • Popular today. The chairs have achieved a pervasive presence that proves the staying power of good design.

Thoughtful Engineering

      • Friendly to the earth. This chair's shell is made with a new process that produces monomer-free "dry-bind" fiberglass.
      • Should you ever need to recycle your chair, it is eligible for Herman Miller's "Take Back" Program - an environmentally sound recycling option.
      • Integral color. The fiberglass shell of the DFAX Armchair is dyed throughout so colors remain vibrant even after years of hard use.
      • Cushioned contact. For extended comfort, the shell is connected to the base by rubber shock mounts.
      • Upholstered comfort. You're sitting in style for the long haul - bring on those multiple course meals.
      • Glide options. The standard glide is also available with felt to protect hard-surface floors.
