It’s a classic. Designed by the legendary Ray and Charles Eames, Herman Miller‘s Molded Plastic Chair was a mainstay of the catalogue for decades following its introduction in 1950. However, as the environmental costs of the fibreglass seat eventually became more apparent, the line was temporarily discontinued.
In 2001, the Eames Molded Plastic Chair returned with a recyclable polypropylene shell in lieu of fibreglass. And in 2022, the company took another major step forward, re-introducing the iconic chairs in 100 per cent recycled post-industrial plastic. To mark the occasion, Herman Miller has launched nine expressive new shell colours, while reviving three of the previously offered hues.
