Light Blue Vinyl Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames DSR Side Chair
An original used Herman Miller Eames light blue vinyl upholstered side chair with a white fiberglass shell, on a chrome DSR effiel base. 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 used, vintage blue DSR side chair is in good condition, it does require some cleaning of the vinyl, and the black vinyl edge does have some marks consistent with use. Further images are available upon request.
The chrome DSR effiel base is in good condition and provides excellent stability.
The ‘C’ Cincinnati Milacron within the circle indicates the shell was manufactured between 1965-1978.
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 example is a rather unique finish and, given the condition it is in, it should see a good deal of appreciation.
