Orange Vinyl Herman Miller Original Eames DAX Dining Arm Chair
An example of a used, original Yellow Orange Vinyl Upholstered Herman Miller Eames, on a used, chrome DAX base. As a modern and contemporary color, this citrus orange-yellow vinyl gives a very warm and welcoming radiance and will look fantastic in a minimalist interior.
The arm shell was the first of the molded fiberglass chairs Charles and Ray perfected and, with the help of Herman Miller, it saw amazing commercial success. The shells were produced with a wide variety of bases, ensuring the versatility of the chair was achievable. The head of Herman Miller’s design department, Alexander Girard, was approached to design upholstered finishes for both the side and arm shells; he produced a vast range of choices with different colours and fabric/vinyl finishes to choose from.
This orange-yellow Vinyl armchair is in good used condition, the colour is still very much excellent and vibrant, although the vinyl may require some cleaning and there could be some slight lifting around some of the stitching. At one section on the arm, the edging is coming away, further pictures available upon request. The base still very much in good stable condition.
The 'S' summit Herman Miller Stamp suggests that it was manufactured around 1959-1989.
Eames shell chairs widely range in respects of being investment prospects. The age of the shell coupled with its condition greatly affects this alongside the colour, the factory of origin and whether or not it comes with its original base. Being an excellent example of an original upholstered chair, this should be a reasonable investment piece.
