For a lot of Eames Shell Chair lovers, one of the key selling points is its molded fiberglass material, with the glass threads visible like a vintage high-tech woodgrain, which was adapted from WWII-era airplane radar domes by Eames and Zenith Plastics.

"The fiberglass chairs" video was made for Herman Miller by the Office of Charles Eames in 1970 and is a live proof why those timeless design pieces deserve their price!
