Charles and Ray Eames’ career-long exploration of the chair as a single-shell form yielded numerous expressions of this idea, beginning in 1950 with the Moulded Fiberglass Chairs.
When the environmental risks associated with fiberglass production were realised, the Moulded Fiberglass Chair was discontinued.
In 2001, Herman Miller introduced the Moulded Plastic Chair in recyclable polypropylene. The Eames Moulded Plastic Stool was introduced in 2015. Atop a 4-leg bar- or counter-height base, the durable polypropylene shells look inviting and stylish everywhere Eames Moulded Plastic Stools are used, from cafés and bistros to breakfast nooks and break rooms.
Beyond the growing selection of plastic shell colours, Eames Moulded Plastic Stools are also available upholstered. A choice of several base colours rounds out your customisation options.
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 any body and every place.
