At A Glance: The Eames Upholstered Molded Plastic Armchair with 4-Leg Base, designed by Charles and Ray Eames, epitomizes their mantra of "the best for the most for the least." The minimalist design and smooth curves of the molded shell make this armchair stand out without having to shout.

What's To Like:

  • Classic design. The Upholstered Molded Plastic Armchair is recognizable anytime, anyplace - for good reason.
  • 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 plastic, 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 Upholstered Molded Plastic Armchair'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 armchair to create.

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