Eames Moulded Wood Chairs
Designed by Charles and Ray Eames
The Eames Moulded Wood Chair.
In our longstanding commitment to Charles and Ray's vision of continued exploration, refinement, and discovery, Herman Miller introduces the Eames Molded Wood Chair, a beautiful new expression of a timeless design. Honoring the same organic shapes and sleek lines of their classic work, this design—made possible with 3-D veneer technology—celebrates the designers' appreciation of honest materials. The authentic, single-shell form of the Eames Moulded Wood Chair is achieved through a proprietary process of 3D veneer manufacturing technology that enables the wood veneer to be moulded into complex curves, thus completing the decades-long endeavour of Charles and Ray Eames to create a wood-shell chair.
For Every Need
Charles Eames famously said: “The role of the designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests." With the moulded plastic, fibreglass and wood shell chairs, as well as the wire chair, Charles and Ray Eames created a universal response to what everyone wants from a chair: a simple, gracious form that fits any body shape and every place.
The Eames shell chair was designed on the principle of adaptability, offering innumerable configurations to serve a wide variety of applications and environments. It’s what makes the chair a classic worthy of museum collections, as well as living rooms, laundrettes, lobbies and cafés. It’s also what makes it a great first piece of furniture to buy in your twenties, that’s still worthy and relevant enough to hand down to your children 20 years later. A diverse selection of shell, base, colour and finish options enable you to create your perfect chair. Just like every person, every chair has a story.
