Eames Task Armchair

Lead Time: Usually ships 3-6 weeks.

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

This mobile desk chair sets the Eameses’ iconic one-piece armchair shell on a height-adjustable base with casters. The textured polypropylene material complements the shapely appeal of the form in an array of colors ranging from fresh to vintage.

Providing just the right amount of give, this authentic height-adjustable, swiveling Eames Task Shell Chair has a deep seat pocket and waterfall seat edge to reduce pressure on the backs of thighs. It's crafted to last.

Charles and Ray Eames believed that “design is a method of action,” and they continually updated their work to suit changing needs and solve new problems. In 1948, they entered a prototype chair in MoMA’s International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design, which led to the launch of their Molded Shell dining chair collection in 1950. Three years later, they expanded it to include the Eames Task Chair (1953), first mounted on a four-star base but now available on a five-star base for markedly better stability. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.” This is the authentic Eames Task Chair by Herman Miller.
