Eames Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base

Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
The Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base is exemplary of the Eameses’ iterative process and their desire to make “the best for the most for the least.” With each new finish and configuration, this rocking chair continues to push the boundaries of what the shell chair can be, whether it’s in an office lounge or the corner of your living room. Made of 100 percent recyclable polypropylene, the Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base’s subtle matte texture offers a soft tactility and notable durability and is available in five archival colors and numerous upholstery options.

Eames Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base

A Better Plastic

Charles and Ray Eames realized their first successful, single-shell form in 1950 with the Molded Fiberglass Chairs. However, when the environmental risks associated with fiberglass production became more widely understood, the decision was made to switch to a safer plastic. In 2004, Herman Miller reintroduced the Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base in polypropylene.

    Color Matters

    The Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base is available in five colors and a variety of Hopsack upholstery options straight from the Alexander Girard archive.

    Tailoring Your Options

    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 specifications, the textile boasts one enhancement: it now uses more sustainable constructions and materials such as antimony-free polyester.

Answer: 
For right now, the shell for the Eames Rocker is still made from plastic. Herman Miller is re-launching the fiberglass chairs, and will be available for order on the Herman Miller Store in early 2014. The Molded Plastic chairs will still be available for order even with the addition of the fiberglass chairs.

Currently, we do not offer the plastic or fiberglass chairs with the upholstered seats. We are excited to announce that the fiberglass and upholstered versions will be available this Spring 2014.

Eames Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker Base 5 5 1 1
Great for calming a newborn baby We weren't sure if we needed a special chair for nursing our newborn and when the rocker arrived we had second thoughts, but after using it for just one night we fell in love with this chair. The baby loves being rocked and it's a lot easier than having to walk around the room to calm baby. December 3, 2013
