Bright Red Herman Miller Original Eames Upholstered DSR Black Side Shell
A fantastic combination of Alexander Girard designed Red upholstery adorns this original Herman Miller, Eames, black Side shell creating a spectacular chair top. Available on its own or as a pair; placed on the second-hand black DSR Eiffel base, these striking chairs will look perfect in any living, dining or office environment, exemplifying the versatility of these iconic chairs.
The upholstered shell chair was introduced as a later addition to the standard fiberglass shells and utilized the design expertise of Alexander Girard, who managed the design department of Herman Miller’s company. His expertise led to many variations of upholstered shells being produced, from the use of different colour shells to the fabrics and combinations he used. For this particular example, the ever classic combination of black and red has been expertly used to create another variation of the iconic chair.
Overall, the shell and the fabric finish are in very good condition, they will benefit from a clean, but the shells condition is excellent with no signs of cracks, chips or tears.
The ‘S’ within the circle indicates the shell originates from Herman Millers’ Summit Prime Factory.
This particular Eames Shell is in great condition and with its striking combination should steadily see interest increase. Eames shells have so many variable factors affecting their viable investment value that over time new aspects may be considered which helps accelerate the investment value of the shells. Understandably, the main factors such as age, condition and even the colour of the shell, will always be the first aspects, but over time, all the shells should gain interest due to their being such iconic pieces.
