Eames Molded Plastic Side Chair

A Safer Plastic

Charles and Ray Eames realized their first successful, single-shell form in 1950 with the Molded Fiberglass Shell Chair. However, when the environmental risks associated with fiberglass production became more widely understood, Herman Miller reintroduced the Molded Plastic Side Chair in 100 percent recyclable polypropylene.

  • Endless Possibility

    Endless Possibility

    The Molded Plastic Side Chair is available in five archival colors—in addition to a number of 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.

I'd like to buy only the base for the Eames Plastic side chair. I currently own 6 chairs with the metal base, but I would like to change the base to wood.

Our chairs are made by Miller- Fehlbaum. Vitra has not the colors we want and you do have these. Should the Lafonda base fith to your shell?
Can we by only the shell?
We want to keep the Lafonda base because we have a Nelson table with a lok alike base.

Answer: 
Herman Miller does not sell just the base for the shell chairs online via the HM Store or our online retailers, but an Authorized Dealer in your area may be able to purchase them as a service part for you. To find the nearest dealer to you, please use our Global Dealer Locator link: http://www.hermanmiller.com/content/hermanmiller/northamerica/en_us/home/worldwide.html.

We do not recommend or advise Herman Miller Parts working with other manufacturer's parts. Our current Eames Molded Plastic Chair would not retrofit to LaFonda parts.

If you have any additional questions, please contact Herman Miller Customer Care at 888.798.0202 or hmstore@hermanmiller.com.

Eames Molded Plastic Side Chair 5 5 1 1
These are classic for a reason! Not only is this a gorgeous chair, but it's extraordinarily comfortable. We have four of them in our kitchen eating area, and we're in them constantly - eating meals, playing cards, doing homework, hanging out. Couldn't like them more. October 19, 2013
