Fiberglass Side Shell

Charles Eames, Ray Eames

The collection has several color-test samples from different fiberglass manufacturers. This test sample for the color Aqua Blue shows mottled yellow on the back, which indicates that the pigment didn’t permeate the whole shell.

A backward “Z”, the Summit logo (backward “B”, “A”, “S” in a circle), and an embossed Herman Miller logo and word mark are on the underside of the shell. “[0]10 7” is stamped in white ink.
