Designer: Charles and Ray Eames, 1950
Manufacturer: Herman Miller®, U.S.A.
Charles and Ray Eames realized their first successful, single-shell form in 1950 with the Molded Fiberglass Shell Chair. However, when the environmental risks associated with fiberglass production became more widely understood, Herman Miller reintroduced the Molded Plastic Side Chair in 100 percent recyclable polypropylene.
With the Molded Plastic Side Chair, the Eameses created a universal response to what everyone wants from a chair: a simple, gracious form that fits any body and every place. Made of 100 percent recyclable polypropylene, the Molded Plastic Side Chair boasts a subtle matte texture and notable durability and is available in an array of colors and a variety of upholstery and base options making it an endlessly versatile option for living, dining and work spaces.
