Eames Plywood Chair Replica
An expertly crafted with a molded seat and back (no bike pumps are used today), the Plywood Chair supports you in a comfortable ergonomic position while the rubber shock mounts buffer against jarring movement. ItÂs beautiful wooden composition and armless design gives a modern yet rustic flair. Perfect for a kitchen or as an additional supplement for sitting, this light and portable chair is great addition. Hailed by Time magazine as the Best Design of the 20th Century, the iconic Plywood Chair (1946) began as an experiment in the EamesÂ apartment, where they were molding plywood in what they called the ÂKazam! Machine.Â The machine pressed thin sheets of wood veneer against a heated membrane that was inflated by a bicycle pump. Humble beginnings for what would become one of the worldÂs most widely recognized and highly coveted chairs.
Eames: The Designer behind the Plywood Chair
Eames has established a reputation for quality leather-based chairs. Manhattan Home Design offers various chairs in the style of classic Eames pieces, such as this padded executive style office chair. The story behind the Eames name is that of an American husband and wife duo, Charles and Ray Eames, whoÂve left a mark on American architecture and furniture in the mid to late 20th century. TheyÂve designed churches, houses, produced several films and have put their furniture designs to fruition. They were honored with the Royal Gold Medal for architecture inn 1979.
