"Eventually everything connects - people, ideas, objects. The quality of the connections is the key to quality."
-Charles Eames

The Plywood Mobiles were created in the early 1940s in connection with a series of experiments conducted by Charles and Ray Eames for the purpose of refining their plywood molding techniques. These designs, whose shapes are strongly reminiscent of Ray's artwork and graphics, were hung from the ceiling of the Eameses' apartment in Los Angeles.

The Plywood Mobiles are offered in two configurations. Each Plywood Mobile consists of two abstract, organically shaped plywood elements, which playfully rotate around and inside one another.

The primary need of the human being was an essential component of every design for Eames. They believed a design to be successful when it catered to how people are similar to one another instead of addressing idiosyncrasies, benefitting the greatest number of people.
