A bit of history about Charles and Ray Eames Furniture:
Charles and Ray Eames is a married couple who are the leading trend setters of modern furniture
and luxury interior design in the 1940s and ’50s. They created one the most creative and
brilliant designs of the 20th century. Their chairs, tables, storage cabinets, and other furniture items were fabricated from wood, fiberglass, plastic,and metal mesh. Eames designs have been widely imitated, but unique Eames
pieces are highly required by collectors.
In 1943, they established the Eames Office at 901 Washington Boulevard in Venice, an address from where they kept on working till 1988 . There they explored that the plywood can be moulded and by 1945, the couple had figured out how to create compound curves in the material which was a great discovery and helped them in theor future designing. One of their master piece was a birch child’s chair and stool manufactured by the Molded Plywood Division of Evans Products.
At the same time , the Eameses continued their short-lived collaboration with Evans Products when they produced about 1,000 LCW (Lounge Chair Wood) chairs. These were followed by a partnership with Herman Miller. One of their most fruitful early projects was the DCM (Dining Chair Metal), a two-piece chair whose plywood sections are secured to a solid-rod chromed frame with rubber mounts.
