Long before "modularity" and "high tech" entered the design lexicon, Charles and Ray Eames were using industrial production techniques to extend the boundaries of design and create a modern aesthetic. And at home or in the office, they look as striking now as they did when first introduced in 1950.
Storage units include cases, cabinets, and drawers in five configurations and four sizes. Storage units are 47 inches wide, 16 inches deep, and 20 1/2, 32 1/2, or 58 1/2 inches high.
Have as much fun as you want. Storage units come in two color schemes-neutral or bright. The neutral scheme uses birch veneer with white and black accents to create a sleek, high-tech look. The bright scheme uses red, blue, black, and white hardboard panels and surfaces reminiscent of a Mondrian painting.
The steel cross-supports and uprights give the units an industrial feel, and the dimpled plywood on cabinet fronts and plywood drawer fronts and shelves reinforce the furniture's mid-century modern appearance.
Uprights, cross-supports, and perforated panels are zinc-coated steel; drawer fronts and shelves are smooth plywood; side panels are painted hardboard; storage unit cabinet fronts are plywood molded to form round dimples. Nylon foot glides are easy on floors.
