Description

The authentic, single-shell form of the Eames Moulded Wood Chair is achieved through a proprietary process of 3D veneer manufacturing technology that enables the wood veneer to be moulded into complex curves, thus completing the decades-long endeavour of Charles and Ray Eames to create a wood shell chair.

The side chair is available in a variety of wood finishes, with the option of an attached seat pad for enhanced comfort, all of which pair with a range of base options that include wire, dowel leg and 4-leg in a variety of finishes.

Born out of Charles Eames’ and Eero Saarinen’s early investigations into the moulding of plywood at Cranbrook Academy, Michigan, in 1939, and continued with Ray at the Eames studio in Venice, California, the moulded chair is a prime example of the Eames iterative process and their desire to make “the best for the most for the least”. With each new form, finish and configuration, the Eames continued to push the boundaries of what the shell chair could be: after experimenting with single-form plywood and stamped metal, they turned to fibreglass and experimented with bent wire; when fibreglass production proved unhealthy for the environment, the decision was made to switch production to a safer plastic; and now, with advancements in safe fibreglass composition and dynamic veneer technologies, the evolution continues with the Moulded Fibreglass and Moulded Wood Chairs.
