Description

TThe concept of "modularity" wasn't in the popular lexicon when Charles and Ray Eames designed their innovative Storage Units (1950), which can be configured to fit a space or need. Suitable for office and residential use, these units were designed as storage and display spaces, with two color schemes. The design resulted from work the Eameses did for a 1949 exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts, and the molded plywood and wire supports echo other items designed by the Eameses, such as their wire base tables and chairs. The "multi" color scheme includes birch fronts and brightly colored (red, white, blue, black and tan) side and back panels. The "natural" color scheme includes birch fronts and neutral (grey, white and tan) side and back panels. The shelves in both color schemes are black. The nylon glides are easy on floors. Please note that the sliding doors have a slight bend to them when viewed in profile; this is true to the way the Eameses originally designed them and does not reflect a defect. This original is an authentic, fully licensed product of Herman Miller, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.
