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.
Good. Wear consistent with age and use.
Seat Height: 17.5"
