Eames Molded Plastic Armchair, Rocker Base - Black Shell
Lead Time: Usually ships 3-6 weeks.
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames® Part of the Herman Miller® Collection
The one-piece shell of this modern rocking chair is molded in 100 percent recyclable polypropylene, which gives it a soft matte finish as light plays across its shadows and contours. The colorful shell is supported by a wire frame and lovely hardwood rockers.
Charles and Ray Eames realized their dream to create a single-shell form in 1950 by making their molded chairs of fiberglass. When the environmental risks of that material became known, the chairs were changed to polypropylene, which is 100% recyclable and has a pleasant matte texture. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.” Since 1955, every Herman Miller employee welcoming a baby into his or her life has been offered a version of this rocker or a $100 savings bond, and most have chosen the former. Fortunately, you don’t have to work at Herman Miller to bring home this bundle of joy.
This is the authentic Eames Rocker by Herman Miller.
