The chairs are available in both the arm and side chair formats in five archival colours, nine new colours, and with upholstery.
They can be configured with a choice of wire, dowel leg, stacking, rocker, and 4-leg bases.
An array of trim, finely tailored Hopsak fabrics designed by Alexander Girard, Herman Miller’s Textile Director from 1952 to 1973, round out the collection of shell customisation options, fully restoring the integrity of the original 1953 shell chair offerings.
All chairs can be recycled through the Herman Miller Take Back Program.
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, fiberglass, and wood shell chairs—as well as the wire chair—the Eames have created a universal response to what everyone wants from a chair: a simple, gracious form that fits anybody and every place.
