Overview Design Story Specifications Care & Maintenance Q&A Customer Reviews The Future of Fiberglass Thanks to a new, proprietary process of producing fiberglass-reinforced plastic, Herman Miller is once again able to produce the original 1950 Eames Molded Fiberglass Armchair safely by means of a less volatile, monomer-free “dry bind” process. Like the original shell chairs, our new, fiberglass finish has the same covetable surface variation and telltale fiberglass striation that have attracted avid vintage collectors for decades.The process for making shells and the nature of fiberglass mean that each shell is unique and can possess traits such as tiny cavities in the surface, small points of lighter or darker color, or faint circular shadows where base attaches to shell. Curve Fulfilling the goals of every modern designer. Charles and Ray Eames View Design Story Curve Take Back Program Like the countless fiberglass shells that have been beloved by avid Eames collectors and design enthusiasts for years, we expect our newly formulated Eames Molded Fiberglass Armchair to endure for generations to come. However, in the off chance your Molded Fiberglass Armchair is compromised, Herman Miller’s Take Back program offers an environmentally sound means forrecycling it. Make It Yours Available in a spectrum of archival colors and numerous upholstery options, the Eames Molded Fiberglass Armchair Chair can be configured with a choice of wire, dowel leg, stacking, and 4-leg bases. A Better Performing “Preform” To create preforms for the new Eames Molded Fiberglass Arm and Side Chairs, a “dry binder process” is used. With this technique, fiberglass strands, some of which melt at a lower temperature, are blown by a robot onto a screen in the shape of the chair shell. Heat is then applied, and enough strands melt so that the preform’s shape remains intact, avoiding the harmful “wet glue” process used in traditional fiberglass fabrication.The process for making shells and the nature of fiberglass mean that each shell is unique and can possess traits such as tiny cavities in the surface, small points of lighter or darker color, or faint circular shadows where base attaches to shell. A Greener Resin By employing technology used mainly in the automotive and manufacturing industries, this new fiberglass resin boasts many environmental improvements. Monomer-free and processed without VOC (volatile organic compounds) or HAP (hazardous air pollutants) emissions, these resins eliminate the need for thermal oxidizers. Compared to the fiberglass resins used in the Eameses’ original design, the new resin results in a safer work environment for employees.
