About this vintage design furniture

Vitra manufactured ’DCM’ plywood chair designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1999. Thanks to the slender organic shapes of the seats and the backshells, Charles and Ray Eames’ DCM quickly acquired the nickname ‘Potato Chip Chair’. Charles and Ray Eames experimented for years with new techniques to produce three-dimensional molded plywood seat shells that took on the contours of the human body. They succeeded with the chairs in the Plywood Group, which have grown into classics with a look that still feels contemporary today. For the Plywood Group, they also combined the seats and backs with different bases. Thanks to the organic shape of the plywood shells and the slightly flexible backrests, these light and compact chairs offer a high level of comfort. This armchair is made of beautiful ash plywood black. Minimal traces of use give this chair the character that suits timeless design. Together with his wife Ray Eames (1912–1988) he significantly contributes to the development of the US post-war design and still inspires designers with his functional furniture design. In 1938 he gets a scholarship at the Cranbrook Academy. A year later Charles Eames teaches design there – where he also develops a close friendship with Eero Saarinen. In 1940 together they win the MoMA ’Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition. Charles Eames works with his wife in various areas such as architecture, conceptual design of exhibitions, photography, and multimedia presentations. Priced as a pair.
