The concept of "modularity" wasn't in the popular lexicon when Charles and Ray Eames designed their innovative Desk (1952). Suitable for office and residential use, the Desk is available 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 and yellow) side and back panels. The "natural" color scheme includes birch fronts and neutral (black and white) side and back panels. The shelves in both color schemes are black. The nylon glides are easy on floors. The letter-size drawer is on the right. 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.
