Eames Molded Wood Side Chair


SKU: DWS Made To Order
4-8 Weeks

With the help of today’s technology, the goal of a single molded shell seat has been achieved. The seamless curves accentuate the beautiful grain of the wood.

Arguably one of the 20th century’s most beloved designs, the Eames Shell Chairs remain a sought after design classic nearly 55 years later.

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.

Eames Molded Wood Shell Side Chairs represent the evolution of Charles and Ray Eames’ iterative process, which continually pushed the boundaries of what a single-shell chair could be. The familiar form of the wood shell sits atop the base design of your choice, Wire Base, Dowel Base or 4-Leg Base. The chairs are available in four striking finishes.
