Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1946.
By Herman Miller.
Designers Charles and Ray Eames established their long and legendary relationship with Herman Miller in 1946 with this boldly original molded plywood dining chair featuring metal legs. Since then, the aesthetic integrity, enduring charm, and comfort of the dining chair and its counterpart lounge chair have earned them recognition as the best of modern design.
Molding thin sheets of lightweight veneer into gently curved shapes gives the hard material of this chair a soft, inviting appearance. The natural contours of the five-ply seat and back are designed to comfortably fit the body. Includes shock mounts made of resilient natural rubber to absorb movement.
The Molded Plywood Metal Leg Dining Chair is offered in seven new finish colors. These environmentally friendly aniline stains allow the wood's natural characteristics to show through. To help celebrate the 100th anniversary of Charles Eames' birth, the chairs are now available in richly grained birch veneer, like the original. Select Chrome or Black for the metal leg base. Then select a wood or painted wood finish.
Material(s): Molded plywood, metal and polished chrome plating

Investment in Sitting Happiness
By: Phoebe, Architect (Washington DC)
I hankered after these chairs for a while, and after some angst about which finish to choose, went with the Natural Cherry. The grain and color are nice and the ply edge is the same shade so it doesn't contrast like the Walnut finish does. In the design, I like the combo of the beauty of the wood grain, the shine and durability of the metal, and the fun / sleek lines. They're "sit for hours" comfortable and a design classic.

Well constructed, comfortable and easy to maintain. What more could you want in a dining chair? Oh and did I mention the lovely proportions and lines? Okay ,I'm hooked.
Designer: 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.View other products by Charles + Ray Eames
