Eames Molded Fiberglass Armchair Rocker Base

Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
The Molded Fiberglass 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, Charles and Ray pushed 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, this plastic rocking chair’s subtle matte texture offers a soft tactility and notable durability, and it is available in an array of colors and numerous upholstery options.

    Eames Molded Fiberglass Chairs

    Future Perfecting Fiberglass

    Thanks to a new, proprietary process of producing fiberglass-reinforced plastic, Herman Miller is once again able to produce the original 1950 Eames Molded Fiberglass Armchair safely by means of a less volatile, monomer-free "dry bind" process. Like the original shell chairs, our new, fiberglass finish has the same covetable surface variation and telltale fiberglass striation that have attracted avid vintage collectors for decades.

    The process for making shells and the nature of fiberglass mean that each shell is unique and can possess traits such as tiny cavities in the surface, small points of lighter or darker color, or faint circular shadows where base attaches to shell.

    • Timeless Elegance

      Take Back Program

      Like the countless fiberglass shells that have been beloved by avid Eames collectors and design enthusiasts for years, we expect our newly formulated Eames Molded Fiberglass Armchair Rocker Base to endure for generations to come. However, in the off chance your Molded Fiberglass Shell is compromised, Herman Miller's Take Back program offers an environmentally sound means for recycling it.

    • Limitless Possibility

      Color Matters

      The Eames Molded Fiberglass Armchair Chair is available in a spectrum of archival colors and numerous upholstery options straight from the Alexander Girard Archive.

    • A Preform that Performs

      A "Preform" that Performs

      To create preforms for the new Eames Molded Fiberglass Arm and Side Chairs, a "dry binder process" is used. With this technique, fiberglass strands, some of which melt at a lower temperature, are blown by a robot onto a screen in the shape of the chair shell. Heat is then applied, and enough strands melt so that the preform's shape remains intact, avoiding the harmful "wet glue" process used in traditional fiberglass fabrication.

    • A Greener Resin

      A Greener Resin

      By employing technology used mainly in the automotive and manufacturing industries, this new fiberglass resin boasts many environmental improvements. Monomer-free and processed without VOC (volatile organic compounds) or HAP (hazardous air pollutants) emissions, these resins eliminate the need for thermal oxidizers. Compared to the fiberglass resins used in the Eameses' original design, the new resin results in a safer work environment for employees.
