About the Designer
Charles and Ray Eames  

A chair that looked like a potato chip. Another that resembled a "well-used first baseman's mitt." A folding screen that rippled . . . With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look." That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Charles and Ray achieved their monumental success by approaching each project the same way: Does it interest and intrigue us? Can we make it better? Will we have "serious fun" doing it? They loved their work, which was a combination of art and science, design and architecture, process and product, style and function. "The details are not details," said Charles. "They make the product." A problem-solver who encouraged experimentation among his staff, Charles once said his dream was "to have people working on useless projects. These have the germ of new concepts." Their own concepts evolved over time, not overnight. As Charles noted about the development of the Molded Plywood Chairs, "Yes, it was a flash of inspiration," he said, "a kind of 30-year flash." With these two, one thing always seemed to lead to another. Their revolutionary work in molded plywood led to their breakthrough work in molded fiberglass seating. A magazine contest led to their highly innovative "Case Study" house. Their love of photography led to film making, including a huge seven-screen presentation at the Moscow World's Fair in 1959, in a dome designed by their friend and colleague, Buckminster Fuller. Graphic design led to showroom design, toy collecting to toy inventing. And a wooden plank contraption, rigged up by their friend, director Billy Wilder for taking naps, led to their acclaimed chaise design. A design critic once said that this extraordinary couple "just wanted to make the world a better place." That they did. They also made it a lot more interesting.

In their longstanding commitment to the Eames vision of continued exploration, refinement, and discovery, Herman Miller introduces the Eames Molded Wood Chair, a beautiful expression of their timeless design. Achieved with the help of today's 3-D veneer technology, this authentic form is the result of a process that gives wood veneer the flexibility it needs to be molded into the complex curves of a single shell.


  • At once classic and familiar, modern and forward-thinking, this new iteration of the Eames design is a simple, sculptured beauty that finds use almost anywhere
  • Whether alone in living rooms or home offices, or gathered together in dining rooms, conference rooms, libraries, or cafes, the enduring design offers the right amount of comfort, utility, and style to suit every setting
  • Advanced 3-D technology helps demonstrate the kind of discovery and evolution that Charles and Ray Eames so greatly valued
  • Today's techniques cut wood veneer into small strips and then process them in a way that makes the wood flexible enough to mold into complex curves without splitting or popping
  • The material takes on the authentic form of the timeless Eames design for the first time as a single wood shell
  • Honoring the organic shapes, sleek lines, and honest materials of the classic work of Charles and Ray Eames, this seating balances both good looks and lasting comfort
  • Lightweight and carefully contoured, the shell seats have high, flexible backs, deep seat pockets, and waterfall front edges so you can sit comfortably
  • Swiveling glides keep the chair steady and level on uneven floors
  • The standard glide is also available with felt to protect hard-surface floors
  • Base is attached by nonremovable wooden shock mounts
  • This side chair has a molded one-piece construction with waterfalledges, and measures .260" in thickness
  • The Eames Molded Wood Chair's range of finish and base options allows for 21 different combinations of this newseating-giving you the opportunity to mix and match a unique look for almost any environment
