About the Designer
Charles & Ray Eames Charles & Ray Eames United States 

Charles Ormond Eames, Jr (1907–1978) and Bernice Alexandra "Ray" (née Kaiser) Eames (1912–1988) were American designers, who worked in and made major contributions to modern architecture and furniture. They also worked in the fields of industrial and graphic design, fine art and film.

The Eames Storage Units are true to the inventive originals introduced in 1950. 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.

Beautiful Modern Media Stand

 from Washington, DC– Verified Buyer

They don't market it as such but I use this piece as a media stand. My 52" flat screen TV fits perfectly on top and I use the bottom area for the DSS receiver, dvd player and AppleTV etc. I wish doors were an option for this model but it's not a deal breaker.

Manufacturer Details
Herman Miller: The name is synonymous with innovation, design, operational excellence, smart application of technology, and social responsibility. Herman Miller, Inc. studies work and living environments and designs and delivers products and services that make these environments work better. Through problem-solving research and design, the company seeks to develop innovative solutions to real needs in working, healing, learning, and living environments.

Herman Miller began in 1923 as a manufacturer of traditional residential furniture, became a leader in "modern" furniture in the 1930s and 1940s; developed lasting ties through the 1950s with legendary industrial designers who led the company in new directions; transformed the office furniture industry with the first panel system in the 1960s; invented and refined ergonomic work seating in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s; reinvented the geometry of systems furniture in 2000, and is today the second largest office furniture company with customers and locations around the world. Their history of employee participation and ownership and technological innovation has long roots and continues to grow. They have always worked hard to be serious about both people and business. They look at their primary goal as creating great places to work.

George Nelson laid out five tenets of Herman Miller's design philosophy 50 years ago:

  • What you make is important.
  • Design is an integral part of the business.
  • The product must be honest.
  • You decide what you will make.
  • There is a market for good design.

While fashion and style have their place, the main criterion for a Herman Miller product has remained constant: Does it truly solve a problem that people care about in a way that improves upon other solutions, or pioneers a new and better answer altogether? The answer is Yes.
