Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1950.
By Herman Miller.

Introduced in 1950, well before its time, the Eames Desk Unit 20 is emblematic of the grace and vision Charles and Ray Eames used in solving home furnishing problems. A result of work they had done for a 1949 exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts, Eames Desk Units and Storage Units reveal the "machine aesthetic" and Japanese influences important to the Eameses at the time. Long before "modularity" and "high tech" entered the language, Charles and Ray combined standardized parts in many ways to create practical furnishings that suit a variety of uses at home and the office. The wire cross supports used in Eames Desk Units echo other classic Eames designs, including Eames Storage Units, wire chairs, and wire-base tables.

The Eames Desk Unit 20 features a birch finish on tops and file fronts with painted hardwood board in neutral or primary colors on case sides and back panels. The desk is also offered in the scaled down Desk Unit 10, featuring open shelf storage and a smaller overall footprint. Select Left- or Right-facing file drawer. Then select Zinc Plated or Black Anodized Zinc frame with Neutral or Primary surface color choice.

With a design legacy that began under the leadership of Gilbert Rohde and George Nelson in the 1930s and 40s, the company gained a worldwide following for its modern furniture collection by the early 1950s, with chairs, sofas and tables for home and office by designers like Charles & Ray Eames, Alexander Girard, George Nelson, and Isamu Noguchi. These icons of modern design developed products that still endure today. And, through continued innovation at the company and a new generation of designers and ideas, the products that Herman Miller makes today will endure for decades to come.

They do this by designing furnishings that improve the human experience - from pioneering the way for ergonomic office seating and furniture to stewarding environmental leadership in its business and manufacturing processes, product material useage and product life cycles. Herman Miller's longstanding commitment to the world around us continues to drive design solutions for the modern home and workspace. The company continues to develop its designer relationships with names like Yves Behar, Jeff Weber and Studio 7 adding lighting, storage and office collections to its catalog of design classics.

Charles + Ray Eames

A chair that looked like a potato chip. Another that resembled a "well-used first baseman's mitt." A folding screen that rippled...

With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

That look and their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes the world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timeless style and great quality Great style, I especially enjoy the whimsy of the multicolor option. Large desktop makes for a highly functional work area. Limited drawer space, however. Shipping took a few weeks, but otherwise a great order experience. And Herman Miller products hold their value because of their timelessness and durability, in case of redecoration down the road.
