Free Shipping on orders over $100

All orders $100 or more receive FREE Standard Shipping to the contiguous 48 states. Please keep in mind that products on sale or orders that include a coupon don't qualify for free shipping. Orders are shipped according to best available rate and transit time as determined by our computers based on package weight and destination.

Case Study® Upholstered Arm Shell Dowel, White/Pewter


Originally designed as an entry in the International Design Competition held by the Museum of Modern Art, the Fiberglass Shell Chair soon became an icon and the face of mid-century design. Driven by the goal of reviving the North American Modernist movement and the Californian lifestyle, Modernica started to create its line of chairs in 2000, using the original machines and crafting techniques. Introduced to a new generation, the Case Study® Upholstered Arm Shell Dowel celebrates the iconic aesthetic of the original and adds a touch of contemporary flair. The contrasting colors provide a fresh take on the classic, while the armchair design pays homage to the original. The dowel base comes with black or chrome wire and you can choose between walnut or maple wood legs. Handmade by Modernica in Los Angeles, USA.
