United States, mid-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 three vinyl-upholstered fiberglass-reinforced armchairs, two in ultramarine and one in raw umber, attach to cast aluminium spiders that are mounted on a steel T-beam. Once seen in airports and other public venues, the seating is perfect for a lounge or modern rec room.
A corresponding tandem four-shell seating with white laminate tabletop is also available.
Good. Wear consistent with age and use.
Seat Height: 17.5"
Materials/Techniques: Fiberglass, Foam, Vinyl, Aluminum, Steel
