Design by Charles & Ray Eames, 1946.
Made in the U.S.A. by Herman Miller.
As Charles and Ray Eames saw it, designers just want to have "serious fun." This 68" high, undulating screen resulted from their play. It's a portable, foldable, enjoyable way to divide space, provide a backdrop and add privacy. The screen was designed as a complement to other Eames molded plywood creations. It's also a stand-alone piece distinctive in all kinds of settings.
Charles and Ray Eames noted that U-shaped cross sections of plywood from their early molding experiments were stable enough to stand alone. To make their screen, they joined the sections with canvas hinges and a synthetic adhesive developed during World War II. Today, a polypropylene mesh held securely by a new process ensures a longer life without compromising the integrity of the 1946 design.
Featuring five-ply strength, the screen's maple inner plies are sandwiched between one of four veneer choices to resist warping and separation. The durable, woven polypropylene mesh connecting the six plywood sections allows for easy adjustment. And, it folds for storage and portability.
Material(s): Natural face veneers with plywood
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
