Eames Task Chair


SKU: PACCP Made To Order

A cradle of comfort on wheels.


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 Task Chair is a new iteration on an archetype. In 1953, Charles & Ray designed the 4-star base for office seating. Now updated with a 5-star base, swivel-mounted seat, and height adjustment, today’s Eames Task Chairs can support a variety of business needs.

  • Designed for extended bouts of sitting.
  • Waterfall seat edge reduces pressure on thighs.
  • Features a height-adjustable, swiveling seat.
  • Five-star base provides impressive stability.
