Eames Shell Chair

ESC - First presented at Museum of Modern Art in 1948, the Eames Shell Chair is an embodiment of organic shapes which has a clean and simple form sculpted to fit the body. Still popular today, its still a timeless design loved by many. Fiberglass is used to make the chairs back in those days while now the shells are made of recyclable polypropylene. There are also different types of base styles available: wire, four-legged and rocker. Iconic. Check out the video about the step by step process on how the chair was made back then and click here to get one of your own.
