When the environmental risks associated with fibreglass production became more widely understood, the decision was made to discontinue fibreglass shell production until a more suitable material could be found.
In 2001, Herman Miller reintroduced the Moulded Plastic Chair in polypropylene. In addition to being 100% recyclable, the polypropylene shell chair’s subtle matt texture offers a soft tactility as well as notable durability.
Eames Moulded Plastic Chairs are available as side chairs or armchairs, and in a choice of colours, including archival or new options. Armchair and side chair shells can be fully upholstered in a variety of textiles; side chair shells can be specified with an upholstered seat pad. A choice of bases rounds out your customisation options.
