Product Details
Weight & Dimensions
Discovery often takes interesting turns. Consider the shapes Charles and Ray Eames made plywood take. Experimenting in the 1940s with thin sheets of wood veneer formed under heat and pressure, they adapted new technology to furniture making. Sculpting a seat and back to fit the contours of the human body, they designed a truly comfortable chair that's suitable for businesses and homes. It's an achievement others have noticed — Time Magazine named it the Best Design of the 20th Century. The Eames Molded Plywood Chair is available here in a classic dining chair shape with wood legs, a design known as the DCW. In the early 1940s, when Charles Eames was working on MGM set designs, he would return to the small apartment where he and his wife, Ray, were experimenting with wood-molding techniques that would have profound effects on the design world. Their discoveries led to a commission from the U.S. Navy in 1942 to develop plywood splints, stretchers, and glider shells molded under heat and pressure. After World War II, they adapted the technology to create inexpensive, high-quality chairs that could be mass-produced. The process eliminated the extraneous wood needed to connect the seat with the back, which reduced the weight and visual profile of the chair and established a basis for modern furniture design. The chair is in the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.
