    • Artful Utility

      Charles Eames and architect Eero Saarinen explored the first iterations of a single-shell chair in molded plywood in 1939. By the 1940s, Charles and his wife and design partner Ray began experimenting with their own plywood-molding techniques. Along the way, their efforts yielded lightweight, stackable leg splints (1942) as well as a glider seat (1943) for the U.S. Navy during World War II.

    • Design Staying Power

      Design Staying Power

      The Eames molded plastic side chair features organic shapes and sleek lines. Originally offered without upholstery or other covering, it remains that way, in keeping with the designers' appreciation of honest industrial materials.

    • Classic Comfort

      Classic Comfort

      The shell seats have high, flexible backs, deep seat pockets, and waterfall front edges so you can sit comfortably even for extended periods.

    • Colorful Variety

      Colorful Variety

      The side chair is available in 10 colors that range from vibrant to subtle, and either a chrome or black finish.

    • Good for the Earth

      Shells are made of polypropylene—which is 100 percent recyclable. The plating process used for our trivalent chrome finish reduces environmental and health issues associated with other forms of chrome plating.

    Answer: 
    Although the Eames Molded Plastic Armchair is a very durable chair, it is not designed for outdoor use. If exposed to prolonged sun, colors may fade over time. Please follow the proper care and maintenance to maintain quality.

    Care & Maintenance
    If your chair is exposed to outdoor elements or bird "gifts," be sure to wash plastic surfaces with a soft cloth soaked in mild detergent and water. Rinse thoroughly and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use solvents or abrasive kitchen cleaners.

    To clean the chrome chair legs, wet cheesecloth in a non abrasive cleaner, like liquid dish soap, and rub the chrome component lightly until the original luster reappears. Dry the chrome with a soft cloth to remove any soap residue.

    I saw the salt-spray resistance test online but I can't see the result.
    Could you let me know if the base will rust ?

    Eames Molded Plastic Side Chair with Wire Base 5 5 1 1
    The perfect little side chair! I just got myself one of these for my apartment. I already have a very comfortable Eames management chair at my desk but I needed something as a secondary chair for my room. The chair is light, solid, stylish, and comfortable! The back flexes with your movement and it really has a nice feel. It is exactly what I was looking for! April 25, 2012
