Elephant Grey Vitra Original Eames DSW Dining Side Shell Chair
Here we have a new, used, Vitra, original Eames, fiberglass side shell chair finished in Elephant Hide Grey on its similarly new, used, light oak DSW dowel base. This fantastic re-introduced shell paired with the DSW base is the epitome of the timeless piece of designer furniture!
Fiberglass was dropped when the shells saw their least popular time, which was in the 1980s. Herman Miller reintroduced production of them out of fiberglass in 2013 whilst Vitra produced them in Polypropylene plastic, that is, until the end of last year.
The classic look of the fibrous finish definitely adds further texture to the strong colour and, being in one of the most popular colours, this is a great chair to own.
As a newer piece, the condition is very good. The colour is wonderfully deep and there are no dents or cracks.
The Vitra stamp and label confirm it is a Vitra produced piece.
The Eames fiberglass series is one of the most recognizable and iconic designs and they are very popular collector’s pieces. The original vintage versions, especially in elephant grey, are very sought after pieces. As a newer version, this may not be an immediate investment prospect, but, it should not lose its value.
