    Eames Molded Fiberglass Chairs

    A Finer 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 Chair 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.

    • Timeless Elegance

      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 Side Chair to endure for generations to come. However, in the off chance your Molded Fiberglass Side Chair is compromised, Herman Miller's Take Back program offers an environmentally sound means for recycling it.

    • Limitless Possibility

      Limitless Possibility

      The Molded Fiberglass Side Chair is available in a spectrum of archival colors, numerous upholstery options, and can be configured with a choice of wire, dowel leg, stacking, and 4-leg bases.

    • Tailor Made

      Tailor Made

      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 customization options, fully restoring the integrity of the original 1953 shell chair offerings. Reproduced as faithfully as possible to Girard's original weave and color selections, the textile boasts one enhancement: it now uses more sustainable constructions and materials such as antimony-free polyester.

    • A Preform that Performs

      A "Preform" that Performs

      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.

    • A Greener Resin

      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.
