Designed as both storage place and display cabinet, they are a striking example of how Charles and Ray Eames extended the boundaries of design to create a new modern aesthetic for the office and home. Eames Storage Units are emblematic of the grace and whimsy Charles and Ray Eames used in designing home furnishing solutions. Incredibly functional, with five configurations to choose from, the Eames Storage Unit is both a useful piece of furniture and an historic example of modern design. The Design: Its no accident that this unit, designed in 1950, looks like a Bauhaus structure. Eames, influenced by European modernist architects, took a functional approach that did not disguise or soften the off-the-shelf look of the unit's components. His use of standardized parts and industrial production techniques for making household furniture was unique and a natural extension of the Bauhaus connection between creative design and modern science. A result of work they had done for a 1949 exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts, these pieces reveal the ''machine aesthetic'' and Japanese influences important to the Eameses at the time. Long before ''modularity'' and ''high tech'' entered the language, Charles and Ray combined standardized parts in many ways to create practical furnishings that suit a variety of uses. The molded plywood and wire cross-supports used in Eames Storage Units echo other classic Eames designs, including their wire chairs, wire-base tables, and molded plywood chairs.
