Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Armchair, Wire Base
from Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames

At A Glance: The Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Armchair with Wire Base is a bigger, more comfortable version of the landmark Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Side Chair. While you've often seen the side chair in school rooms and auditoriums, the armchair is a bit more substantial and supportive. Using a new process for creating fiberglass without the harmful glues of the past, Herman Miller has returned the Shell Chairs to their heritage. The Eames' would be pleased.

What's To Like:

  • Fiberglass is back, and we're glad. Its unique texture and surface striations make the Shell Chairs one of Herman Miller's all-time hits. It's about time they figured out an environmentally responsible way to manufacture them!
  • Classic design. The Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Armchair is recognizable anytime, anyplace - for good reason.
  • The Shell Chairs - all of them - were among the first to have comfort as a priority during the design process. Waterfall seat edges and a curvy seat pocket give this chair an easygoing sit.


What's Not to Like:

  • There is practically no give in the molded fiberglass, so attempting to use this chair as a recliner wouldn't be a good idea. 


The Bottom Line: 
Original design, original comfort, original character. The Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Armchair's got them in spades. With all the new fiberglass and upholstery colors in Herman Miller's Palette, you'll have a great time choosing what vibe you want your armchair to create.

Charles and Ray Eames adapted molding techniques developed during World War II to mass produce this classic design. These molded fiberglass armchairs are true to the originals and are fully authentic, with updated materials to meet environmental requirements. Their enduring forms and quality construction make them comfortable, durable performers.

Landmark Design

  • Organic shapes. A clean, simple form sculpted to fit the body; first presented at the Museum of Modern Art in 1948.
  • Popular today. The chairs have achieved a pervasive presence that proves the staying power of good design.

Thoughtful Engineering

  • Friendly to the earth. This chair's shell is made with a new process that produces monomer-free "dry-bind" fiberglass.
  • Should you ever need to recycle your chair, it is eligible for Herman Miller's "Take Back" Program - an environmentally sound recycling option.
  • Integral color. The fiberglass shell of the DFAR Armchair is dyed throughout so colors remain vibrant even after years of hard use.
  • Cushioned contact. For extended comfort, the shell is connected to the base by rubber shock mounts.
  • Upholstered comfort. You're sitting in style for the long haul - bring on those multiple course meals.
  • Glide options. The standard glide is also available with felt to protect hard-surface floors.

Comments about Herman Miller Eames Upholstered Molded Fiberglass Armchair with Wire Base:

The upholstered version is definitely more comfy than the regular shell (but both are comfortable)! I have a dog and the furs are all over the chair even though she's never on it...that I know of. If I could make the decision I'd go for the non-upholstered version just because it'd be easier to keep clean.

Service and delivery comments:

Delivery was quick and painless.
