Eames Molded Plastic Armchair

Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
The Molded Plastic Armchair was designed on the principle of adaptability, offering innumerable configurations to serve a wide variety of applications and environments. It’s what makes it a classic worthy of museum collections—and living rooms, laundromats, lobbies, and cafés. In addition to boasting a soft matte texture and notable durability, the polypropylene shell is also 100 percent recyclable. The Molded Plastic Armchair is available in five archival colors, as well as in numerous upholstery and base options.

Eames Molded Plastic Armchair with Wire Base

Materials Matter

In the late 1980s, over thirty years after Charles and Ray Eames first realized their first successful, single-shell form in molded fiberglass, Ray and Herman Miller decided to discontinue shell production until a more suitable material could be found. In 2004, Herman Miller reintroduced the Molded Plastic Armchairs in 100 percent recyclable polypropylene.

  • Timeless Elegance

    Make It Yours

    Available in nine archival colors—as well as in numerous upholstery options—The Molded Plastic Armchair can be configured with a choice of wire, dowel leg, stacking, and 4-leg bases.

  • Built-in Support

    Well Woven

    Fully restoring the integrity of the original 1953 shell chair offerings, 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. 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.

I am wondering how this chair will do outdoors? I am interested in the black coated 4 leg option and am wondering if it would rust quickly or not.

Answers

Answer: 
The Eames Molded Plastic Chairs are designed for indoor use and are not designed to sustain the elements of an outdoor environment.

We do offer other colored, plastic chairs that are suitable and tested for outdoor use, such as the Air Chair or Chair First. (product recommendations)
