The evolution of an icon: The Eames® Molded Armchair is now made from eco-friendly recycled plastic. Designed in 1948 by Charles and Ray Eames, and first presented at MoMA in the International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture, the Molded Plastic Armchair was the first plastic chair to be mass-produced. The current models are an exact reproduction of the originals, with a clean, simple form that is sculpted to fit any body. The Eames Molded Recycled Plastic Armchair’s shell sits atop a base of either wire or wooden-dowel legs. This simple, gracious design makes a stylish statement anywhere in your home. The Eameses and the manufacturer Herman Miller® are represented in MoMA’s collection.
