Vitra began producing Eames designed products under the licence of Herman Miller, opening up the European market for the US based company. This particular style of chair was designed by the Eameses to be used at any office desk and they utilized their fiberglass shells to create this. This means the chair was available in 2 variants; this arm chair (PACC or Plastic Arm Chair Castor base) and the side chair (PSCC or Plastic Side Chair Castor base), widening the versatility of these iconic designs.
The brown hop-sack upholstery is in very good condition with no lifting or tears; the shells show small signs of its age but a good clean will help this.
The castor bases are in perfect and working condition though would benefit from a clean too.
The sticker found on the underside of the shells indicates their production by Vitra under Herman Miller.
Eames shells are much coveted. The resilience of their design is understandable due to their design being so modern, even by the standards of today. This means the interest rate of the shells is affected by many various factors; factors such as the age and condition of the shell, its colour and factory of origin all play a part when evaluating the value of the shell. Being one of Vitra’s first editions these chairs should prove to be a good investment.
