he Eames Molded Plywood Chair is well known for using the same innovative technology pioneered by the Eameses during World War II. (Commissioned by the US Navy, they developed lightweight plywood splints, stretchers and glider shells formed by heat and pressure.) After the war, this same technology was applied to making high-quality chairs that could be affordably mass-produced. Sculpted to support the human body, the Eames Molded Plywood Chair is suitable for homes and businesses alike. Here its slim profile is enhanced by an application of Mingled Plaid by Paul Smith. A spacious windowpane plaid woven of worsted wool, Mingled Plaid’s dove gray ground lifts the chair’s white ash frame while injections of citron and magenta introduce a modern, fashion-forward take on Scottish heritage.
In collaboration since 2002, Paul Smith and Maharam have generated a vibrant range of textiles that translate traditional suiting concepts to interiors: reinterpreting quintessential apparel motifs like houndstooth, plaid, polka dots, and stripes through idiosyncratic combinations of colour. Now the two entities are partnering on an exclusive assortment of iconic pieces from the Herman Miller Collection that give new meaning to Smith’s “classics with a twist” approach. Launching at Herman Miller’s Tokyo flagship store on October 1 2020, an exhibit will showcase this concise selection of midcentury designs reimagined by Smith in alternately tailored, whimsical, and artful textiles.
