Eames Shell - 1st gen Rope edge

Eames Shell - 1st gen Rope edge


Before Herman Miller was making Eames fiberglass shell chairs the original run was produced by Zenith. To give Eames shell chairs the radius edge that Charles and Ray designed, they inserted a rope along the shell’s edge on the first production examples. The ropes were round and molded in place on the edge, providing for a comfortable handgrip.
