Herman Miller is proud to reintroduce another base option to the Molded Plastic Chair: the wood dowel base. The maple dowel legs bring a softer aesthetic, while the crossed metal rods are distinctly Eames. And the chairs are offered in 10 colors that play beautifully against the maple wood. Friendly to the earth, Molded Plastic Side Chair shells are made of recyclable polypropylene and are dyed throughout so colors remain vibrant even after years of hard use. For extended comfort, the shell is connected to the base by rubber shock mounts. The dowel-leg base has maple legs with non-adjustable nylon glides.
