Tandem Four-Shell Seating with Table

By Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller

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, alternating raw umber and 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.
