Eames fiberglass X-base Xenith Armchair

Certified Price







Posted on September 28, 2017 via the Apartment Therapy Marketplace iPhone App.

Up for sale is an early Eames / Zenith Plastics armchairs, in parchment color on an X-base. Zenith Plastics was the first producer to mold the shells for Herman Miller.

The chair is in good vintage shape, with only minor wear to the fiberglass as pictured. The two back glides are also missing, but replacements are easily sourced.

For the collector: this is a “second generation” Eames fiberglass armchair: the seat does not have the coveted rope edge, but it does have the large shock mounts, and it is not embossed with the Herman Miller logo or the logo of the subsequent fiberglass manufacturers, indicating it is a Zenith Plastics shell.

Shipping is not included. Free local pickup in Brooklyn, NY. Local curbside NYC delivery for $50. Message me for economical nationwide shipping options.*

This is an iconic piece of mid century modern design. Read more about the history of the chair here: http://eamesdesigns.com/library-entry/molded-plastic-chairs/
