Tandem Four-Shell Seating with Table by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller

Info

United States, 1960s

Charles and Ray Eames developed this tandem shell seating for Herman Miller in 1963 as a comfortable solution for heavily trafficked spaces. A row of four vinyl-upholstered fiberglass-reinforced armchairs, two in raw umber and two in ultramarine, attach to cast aluminium spiders that are mounted on a steel T-beam. In the middle sits a white laminate tabletop with a dark vinyl edge. Once seen in airports and other public venues, the seating is perfect for a lounge or modern rec room.

The table measures 22.25″ wide x 17.25″ high.

A corresponding tandem three-shell piece is also available.
