Product Overview

Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair with Metal Base

Dubbed "the greatest design of the 20th Century" by Time Magazine, there's no doubt that the Herman Miller Eames Molded Plywood Chair is one of the most iconic furniture designs ever. Developed by Charles and Ray Eames, whose groundbreaking work highly influenced the mid-century modern movement, the chair has been in continual production since 1946. Its sleek look was completely different from the large and bulky furniture that was trendy at the time; thus, the chair became popular for its utter simplicity. The Eames Molded Plywood suite of chairs includes:

  • A molded plywood seat and back.
  • Rubber shock mounts.
  • Optional steel legs.

Whether you prefer the laid-back Molded Plywood Lounge Chair, or the upright Eames Dining Chair fits your needs better, you'll get a piece of furniture that's both warmly inviting and historically revered. 

Eames Molded Plywood Chair Features

Charles and Ray Eames developed these influential chairs using what they called a "Kazam! machine" that pressed and molded sheets of wood into sleek and curving shapes. The chairs were made with both elevated style and modern comfort in mind.

Molded Plywood Seat and Back

The Kazam! machine, molded thin pieces of plywood into a contoured seat and back - this is, of course, where the chair gets its name. The lounge chair's frame is lower and slightly more reclined, whereas the dining chair's upright shape makes it perfect for placing at your table.

Rubber Shock Mounts

The two pieces of molded plywood are connected by a curving wooden spine and rubber shock mounts. These were highly innovative at the time, and they ensure the seat back is flexible and giving, moving with the sitter as he or she leans back or changes positions.

Two Base Options

Eames Molded Plywood chairs have two base options: wooden legs or chrome-plated steel legs. Both versions are stylish and authentic.

Customizable Color and Wood Variations

There are several different colors and wood variations to choose from - pick one that complements the decor in your home or office.
