Product Description

A pair of vintage, original, Herman Miller Eames black side shell chairs are emboldened by their Alexander Girard designed orange vinyl and black DSR bases. The vinyl finish is easy to clean whilst looking stunning with its deep orange complimenting the black of the shells and the black of the newer, used DSR bases.

The Eames shells require little introduction with prototypes beginning in the late 1940s, production began in 1950. Arm shells were the first to be produced and the side shells were introduced in 1952/1953. Alexander Girard was commissioned to help design a wide variety of upholstery finishes for both the side and arm shells, providing an alternative to the standard fiberglass shells and expanding the buying options for these chairs.

Individual Characteristics

The side shells are in an aged condition with some slight tears and marks in the vinyl. The fiberglass shells do not display any cracks or dents.

The ‘S’ stamp signifies the shells originate from Herman Miller’s Summit Plastics factory.

Investment Details

The Eames shells are a great investment piece, but many factors affect how valuable they are. The origin of the shell, its age and even the colour can have an effect on its value. These are aged chairs which does mar their investment value a little, but as an introduction into the Eames collection, they will still prove to be stylish and reliable.
