Blue Vinyl on White Herman Miller Original Eames DSR Side Shell Chair
A used, original Herman Miller blue vinyl upholstered Eames side chair with a white fiberglass shell, on a new, used, white Eiffel DSR base. It is a versatile colour that will certainly liven up an office space with its colour. Typical of the 70s, the vinyl finish is cushioned providing a comfortable seating experience whilst providing an easily cleanable surface.
This chair represents a slightly modern approach to the upholstered shells Charles and Ray designed and the vinyl finish was applied to both the side and arm shell variants and the arm version was also made available with a combination of a fabric seat with vinyl backrest and arms. The upholstered designs were constructed with the help of the famous Alexander Girard who helped design a wide variety of colours and fabrics for the Eames shells.
This blue vinyl side chair is in good condition, with no major tear or marks on the upholstered vinyl. It will require some cleaning on the vinyl, further images are available upon request.
The chrome base is in good used condition and will need some cleaning, but otherwise is fully functional.
The ‘S’ within the circle indicates the shell originates from Herman Miller’s Summit Plastics factory.
Eames shell chairs vary in their investment interest depending on many factors. The main few are the age, condition, colour and origin of the shell alongside whether it is on its original base. This particular vinyl blue is an example of unique finish and, given the condition it is in, it should see a good deal of appreciation.
