Eames Molded Wood Chair

And when we thought that one of the greatest classics created by Charles & Ray Eames, the Eames Plastic Side Chair, could not be reinvented or even surprise us, Herman Miller launched an adaptation of this icon of the 20th century design, the Eames Molded Wood Chair. Using the innovative 3-D veneer molding technology, the american manufacturer presents this chair as a homage to the “organic shapes, sleek shapes and honest materials”, so typical of the Eameses work. Available with the seat shell in santos palisander, walnut and white ash assembled on the usual Eames bases – ‘Eiffel’, four metal or wood legs – the Eames Molded Wood Chair is one my new favourite pieces.
