Charles and Ray Eames believed that “design is a method of action,” and they continually updated their work as new materials became available. Their Molded Plastic chairs were originally designed in metal and entered as a prototype in MoMA’s 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design. They then changed the material to fiberglass in 1950, and today the chairs are made of recyclable polypropylene. Charles was dissatisfied with the fiberglass, and it wasn’t until after his death that the matte finish he desired was achieved, thanks to advances in materials. “The chair that Charles and Ray were designing,” explains grandson Eames Demetrios, “is the chair that’s made tomorrow.” The deep seat pocket and waterfall seat edge keep you comfortable by reducing pressure on the backs of thighs. This is an authentic chair by Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A. DSW stands for dining height, side chair with wood base.

Eames Molded Plastic Chair Designed by Charles and Ray Eames, 1950 While the same single-shell form has endured throughout the years, the decision was made to switch the material to polypropylene when the detrimental effects of fiberglass became more widely understood. In addition to being 100 percent recyclable, the polypropylene molded shell chairs are highly durable, boast a subtle matte finish, and come in a variety of upholstered options—all specified with a sustainable adhesive. Faithfully reproduced to original specifications, the new Alexander Girard Hopsak fabrics are made from recycled polyester and come finished in a classic white, black, or parchment edge trim.

Bumper Side Chair Designed by Ward Bennett for Geiger, 1966 Known for his unimpeachable material sensibility and minimalist designs, Ward Bennett delighted in modernizing classic forms. His iconic Bumper Chair, for example, was based on George Washington’s 18th century swivel chair. With its short seat and notable lumbar support—an especially important feature to Bennett, who suffered from back pain and studied anatomy—the Bumper Chair is a bucket seat in the most classic sense. The versatile 4-leg side chair version is equally at home around a dining table and in a café or lounge setting, and the stately Bumper Conference Chair, with its 5-star caster base in polished aluminum, adds ease and comfort to any meeting room. A lounge chair with a 4-leg plated-metal base is also available. Bumper Side Chair arm and cushion shown in Stone/MCL leather, Shell shown in Stone/Double Beam from Geiger Textiles, Satin Chrome base

Thanks to a new, proprietary process for producing fiberglass, Herman Miller is once again able to fabricate the original Eames Fiberglass Chair safely. The newly reformulated material is created using a monomer- and VOC-free resin in a molding process that all but eliminates hazardous airborne compounds—and is fully recyclable through Herman Miller’s Take Back program. The chair is available in both side and arm chair versions, in eight archival colors, with a choice of wire, dowel leg, stacking/ganging, rocker, and 4-leg bases, as well as the option for upholstery.
