Curves Ahead — From dining and lounging to rocking little ones to sleep, these functional pieces of art will elevate the way you live for years to come. Choose from the molded plastic, fiberglass, wood, and wire versions of this iconic design.
Breaking the Mold
After the success of their molded plywood designs from the 1940s, designers Charles and Ray Eames pushed their innovation process further, molding plastic, fiberglass, even bending wire. In 1950, the experimentations bore fruit in the colorful, curved form the Eames Shell Chair—a universal, inclusive collection of chairs that are just as at home in your living room as they are in museum collections.
The chair that revolutionized fiberglass and bent wire is now reimagining the definitive material of the 21st century: plastic waste. Crafted to last for generations, the re-engineered shells now contain 100% post-industrial recycled plastic, helping save approximately 122 tons of plastic per year—that’s equivalent to keeping 16 million yogurt containers out of the landfill for decades to come.*
