Making an Eames DSR Molded Plastic Shell Arm Chair
Eames Molded Plastic Chairs – the "making of" video, featuring the legendary Eames DSR Fiberglass Chair. This chair has been reissued to the exact same specs as the original, but is now being made with a more environmentally safe product called polypropylene.
Without question, this post is yesterday's news. In fact, a large percentage of those on my Newfire syndicated feed list have already pointed to this video. Having said that, this friendly reminder: BarryBlog is about sharing, and yes, that includes with me. Being a HMI fan, I could not face not having this on my blog, if for nothing more than posterity. I did post this video in the past. It really is an amazing video and it provides an even greater appreciation for just how much effort goes into making one of these design beauties. Surprisingly, this is one of Herman Miller's lower cost classics. But as I have said before, any Herman Miller product you buy will likely last as long as you do, or longer.
