Umber Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Vintage Eames DSW Side Shell Chairs
A rather rare version of a classic. These vintage Herman Miller Eames highly fibrous umber DSW shell chairs are stunning on used walnut DSW dowel bases. These are a unique colour, these chairs are in a well used vintage condition and are an excellent example of the Eames shell chair. The bold colour compliments the dark walnut colour of the DSW base.
The side variant of the iconic shell chairs was the second version to be produced and was done so in 1952/53. The arm shell was the first one to be produced in 1950 from the combined force of Zenith Plastics and Herman Miller.
These shells have been used lots over years as shown by their few chips on the sides, however this doesn’t take away the character from these rather unique vintage chairs. This visual impairment is reflected with the discounted price!
The ‘S’ logo indicates that these shells originate from Herman Millers’ Summit Plastics factory.
