Fixes Eames Chair

Suggests you how to repair the chairs
1. Shock Mounts

Shock mounts in chair Eames Lounge (670) and Ottoman (671)  are one of the most important constructive parts of the chair. Unfortunately they are most susceptible to damages called „achilles hill” ,until now Herman Miller did not change that solution Which causes a characteristic feature of this chair. The shock mounts are made from metal, covered by ruber, which over the flow of time oxidizes and gets old. Herman Miller ,for shock mounts, guarantees 3 years.

For repair  Eames Lounge Chair (670) and Ottoman (671) not deviating from the original, I made shock mount absorbers from metal and wooden parts, providing a good combination of arms joints and good amortization.

Entirety it does not stray off the original. Additionally Shock mounts are protected by a coating against oxidizing and wearing.  Additionally the shock mounts are checked and tested for durability of 250 /300 lbs. This Guarantees the good quality of the job. Every repaired chair by me is covered by this warranty five years.

Below I am presenting you examples of mistakes, broken, and defected shock mounts, installation and how it supposed to look like.

2. Repair of arm eames  / ear eames  / back panel eames  / seat panel eames

Arms/ear panel eames  are the part of the chair joining the back with the set panel shell . Usually this parts damage is caused by one of the four broken side shock mounts. Damages in arms or ear eames may also be caused by too much pressure on the back side panel shell, as well as during moving or transportation.

Eames Lounge Chairs 670 have been made with various veneers  rosewood, walnut, and cherry. All these broken panels eames with different veneer I can save by keeping a complete Eames lounge chair.

These types of damages to the panels/ears/arms can be fixed, below are repaired panels/ears/arms done by me:

It is caused mostly by time and also by mechanical factors like scratches, scuffs and discoloration.
