Arguably one of the 20th century’s most beloved designs, the Eames Shell chairs remain a sought after design classic nearly 55 years later. The shell chairs are the result of Charles and Ray’s 6 years of experimenting with molded plywood to create a single shell form. Unable to successfully create the single shell with molded plywood at the time, Charles & Ray saw an opportunity to fulfill their vision using fiberglass, then plastic.

Charles Eames famously said, “The role of the designer is that of a very good, thoughtful host anticipating the needs of his guests.” The Molded Shell Chairs fulfill a universal response to what one wants in a chair: so that it could fit every body and any context; a chair that would be equally at home in a museum, living room or business.

The Eames Molded Plastic Armchair Rocker is available in 12 colors and plenty of options to customize, including upholstery. This chair, first designed in 1950, continues to be extremely versatile and durable. Making it the perfect fit for an office lounge, living room or children’s room.

A handful of Eames furniture designs, such as the Lounge Chair and Ottoman or the Molded Fiberglass Shell Side Chair, have become ubiquitous. Some are a staple in the interior design of airports around the world. Charles and Ray Eames spent forty years creating furniture in the realm of tables, lounges, chairs, room dividers, stools, and more for public and residential spaces.
