With the introduction of the upholstered version designed with the help of the esteemed Alexander Girard, design director of Herman Miller and Charles Eames’s friend, the Eames shell came in many variations of coloured and upholstered shells.
Herman Miller have faithfully re-introduced the fiberglass version of the coveted shells along with new upholstery versions to maintain the versatile and various options for these stunning chairs.
With its truly unique combination, this used, more modern shell is stunning. The fabric is in excellent condition and so is the shell.
The used Rocking base is in good condition with only some natural wear visible.
The embossed logo on the underside of the shell indicates this is a newer example of the Herman Miller and Eames shell.
The Eames shell chairs are one of the most coveted of their pieces. Whilst numerous, their individuality, aided by age, allows for many variations of the same shell. As with many things, the age, condition and origin of the shells aid with their investment value. With this shell being a slightly more modern version, its investment value is reasonable, but with its unique and vibrant finish, this chair should see its interest rise as it ages.
