Herman Miller x HAY Join Forces to Reimagine Iconic Eames Classics
A 21st-century take on the mid-century designs.
A 21st-century take on the mid-century designs, the collaboration features a wide range of colors, which are splashed onto new materials. Standouts include the Eames Wire Chairs created for outdoor use, as well as the Molded Plastic Shell Chairs, which are made out of 100% post-industrial recycled plastic. Elsewhere, the Eames Molded Plywood Chair is updated in emerald green.
“With this collection, HAY thoughtfully reimagines Eames classics in a forward-thinking, first-of-its-kind collaboration. A unique vision of color, the evolution of thoughtful materials, and a beautifully interconnected story of design partnership harnesses the enduring spirit of Herman Miller,” Herman Miller’s president Ben Watson shares in a press release. HAY’s Rolfe and Mette Hay — who are longtime fans of Herman Miller and the Eameses — add, “Since the inception of HAY, our goal has been to provide our customers with access to works by the best designers in the world — designers who understand that if you want to create high-quality industrial design for the many, then you need to find smart ways of producing… If you look at a product like the Aeron Chair, there’s only one company that could develop a chair with such complexity — and that’s Herman Miller. It takes a strong passion for design and a pioneering legacy in production.”
The HAY x Herman Miller Eames collection ranges from $345 USD for the Eames Hang-It-All, to $6,500 USD for the Eames Compact Sofa.

Those in the U.S. can purchase the pieces at MoMA Design Store and those in Canada can shop the collection at Inform Interiors.
