Product Overview

Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair with Wood Base

Named “The Greatest Design of the 20th Century” by Time Magazine, there has been no debate that the Herman Miller Eames Molded Plywood Chair with wood base is one of the most groundbreaking furniture designs in modern history. Its sleek and innovative look was completely different from the large and bulky furniture that had dominated the era; thus the Eames Molded Plywood Chair became instantly popular and iconic. In production since 1946, this design's longevity speaks to the innovative work of Charles and Ray Eames; designs that highly influenced the mid-century modern movement. Some features that 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.
