Made by Herman Miller
EC175 Chair (1977)
Listed for sale is a rare and marvelous EC175-8 chair, designed by Charles and Ray Eames, produced by Herman Miller. This is one of the more unique and later Eames designs, building upon the 1950's fiberglass innovations, though suiting different functions. This particular example came from a commercial office environment in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, where it was seemingly seldom used. The chair is in excellent vintage condition and seems to be one of only a few nicely preserved examples remaining. This example has a production date, noting 1977 as the year of manufacture. As noted in photos, it features red fabric upholstery with a white fiberglass back. The foam is in lovely condition and is neither hard nor deteriorated otherwise. It also retains the original seat pillow. The chair does show some light wear.
