Designed by Charles and Ray Eames®
Part of the Herman Miller® Collection

Charles and Ray Eames realized their dream to create a single-shell form over 80 years ago by making their molded chairs of fiberglass. When the environmental risks of that material became known, the Eames Molded Shell Chair (1950) was changed to polypropylene, which is 100% recyclable. 

In 2022, Herman Miller enhanced the shell chair once more by transitioning to 100 percent post-industrial recycled plastic. The subtle matte texture of the re-engineered plastic shell is available in your choice of vintage and contemporary colors, with three leg materials and styles and leveling floor glides.
The Molded Shell Chair is a celebration of the Eameses’ fascination with emerging materials. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” says grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.”
