Product Description

Eames® Storage Unit

This modern classic Storage Unit from Charles and Ray Eames is reissued by the original manufacturer, Herman Miller, and is featured in the Museum’s collection. A result of work for a 1949 exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts, this piece reveals the "machine aesthetic" and Japanese influences important to the Eameses at the time. Charles and Ray Eames, whose work is featured in the Museum’s collection and has been displayed in numerous exhibitions, combined standardized parts in many ways to create practical furnishings that suit a variety of uses. The cabinet fronts are dimpled plywood, the drawer fronts and shelves are molded plywood, the side and back panels are painted hardboard, and uprights, cross-supports, and perforated panels are zinc-coated steel. The nylon glides on the feet protect floors.

About the Designers

Charles Eames & Ray Eames

Husband-and-wife design team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames were among the most influential designers of the twentieth century. Their landmark contributions include furniture, architecture, film, and graphics. They were pioneers in the molding of plywood, which was developed from their experiments and projects for the U.S. Navy. Their association with the Museum goes back to 1940, with a joint entry with Eero Saarinen in the MoMA competition "Organic Design in Home Furnishings." Since then nearly 100 examples of their work have entered the Museum's design collection.
