Video :: Eames Shells step by step
f0089299_1274854.jpg

For a lot of Eames Shell Chair lovers, one of the key selling points is its molded fiberglass material, with the glass threads visible like a vintage high-tech woodgrain, which was adapted from WWII-era airplane radar domes by Eames and Zenith Plastics. It's a point totally lost on Herman Miller, who used injection-molded plastic for the reintroduced "original"--or rather, "authorized"--Eames shell chair a few years ago. [To their tremendous credit, LA-based Modernica preserved the original HM molds and equipment and continues to manufacture shell chairs in the OG fiberglass. Though I really hope their dudes just took the facemasks off for the pictures
