In their early experiments with molded plywood, Charles and Ray Eames began to conceive structures that would be stable enough to stand on their own. Their idea was soon realized in the Eames Molded Plywood Folding Screen (1946), a portable, foldable screen meant to divide and define space. It consists of six U-shaped molded plywood panels with natural veneer faces and lightweight walnut inner plies. At first, the screen had canvas hinges affixed with adhesive, but now it’s held together with polypropylene mesh that’s more flexible and durable. It stretches up to five feet wide when needed and folds down for compact storage when not in use – a great feature for providing more privacy to overnight guests in open living spaces. This is an authentic Eames product by Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.
