'Quatrofoil' Herman Miller Vintage Eames DSR Side Chair With Alexander Girard Upholstery
A Herman Miller vintage Eames eiffel DSR chair upholstered in the gorgeous original fabric called 'Quatrofoil' designed by Alexander Girard, stunning.
The distinctive mirror like flecks within the fabric combined with the standard coloured crosses really make for a remarkable finish for this particular chair which is accentuated by the bold white of the used, newer, DSR base.
Fiberglass original shells always have a base colour and gorgeous 'visible' fibers in the shell itself. These particular shells have retained their strong white finish which still show the fibers. Upholstered versions were introduced by Herman Miller and many were used from the esteemed designer Alexander Girard, who designed a multitude of fabric finishes for one of his most favourite chairs, the Eames shell chair.
The fiber shell is in great vintage condition with no cracks, chips or defects.
The chair may have a minor fabric lift due to the age of the chair, but is still in very good condition otherwise.
Eames Shell Chairs vary from 1 to 5 stars for investment. The reasons depend on so many factors but mainly the condition, the rarity of the colour, the originality of the base, the age and of course the maker are those that determine. Excellent examples of a lovely combination such as this represent a good value investment.
