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.

The Molded Plastic Side Chair is available in 14 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.
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.
