A unique iteration in the continuous evolution of the Eames Shell Chair

In the 1950s, Charles and Ray started experimenting in bent and welded wire. Inspired by trays, dress forms, and baskets, the Eames Office developed a number of pieces, including the wire version of the single-shell form.

The shell design combines transparent lightness with technological sophistication and is available in a variety of bases. The Wire Chair is available without upholstery, with a seat cushion, or with seat and back cushions. Due to its shape, the two-piece cushion is also known as the “Bikini” pad.
