Orange Herman Miller Original Eames RAR Arm Shell Chair
A sumptuous version of a true classic. This original Herman Miller Eames orange arm shell is adorned in a soft orange fabric and sits on a light wood RAR base. The newer version of this iconic shell with its bold orange shell and the soft orange fabric is complimented by its used light wood RAR base, creating a truly amazing rocking chair.
The upholstered versions of the Eames shells were helped from the Eames’s great personal friend Alexander Girard, who became the head of textiles at Herman Miller. Girard was meticulous when it came to his work, producing many various textile designs which were also used as wallpaper.
Herman Miller faithfully reintroduced the fiberglass shell and with it maintained the upholstered options for them. The options available are still numerous, available in various fabrics in various colours.
This being a newer example if these iconic shells, it is in great condition. Though used, it has no cracks or dents whilst the fabric of the upholstery is still as soft as the day it was produced with no lifts or tears.
The logo embossed on the underside of the shell indicates it is a newer example of Herman Miller and Eames’s shell.
An Eames shells is a coveted piece. A simultaneous artistic piece whilst being an ergonomic design has helped maintain their interest. Of course, factors such as age, condition and even colour can affect how much interest these pieces gain with original Zenith pieces commanding a respectable price. With this being a newer example it may not seem a natural investment piece at this stage, but if kept in good condition, this shell should see steady interest over time.
