Eames® Molded Wood Stool

Design Charles & Ray Eames®
Molded wood, veneer, metal legs
Made by Herman Miller®

The plywood molding technique perfected by Charles and Ray Eames led to the development of a number of iconic designs for Herman Miller - in addition to laying the foundation for a major movement in modern furniture design. Yet in their lifetimes, the Eameses were unable to execute their single-shell chair design in molded wood. Decades later, thanks to a proprietary process of 3-D veneer manufacturing technology, the complex curves of Eames Molded Wood Shell chairs were finally realized. The refined, enduring molded wood shell form is available as Eames Molded Wood Stools.

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."

The authentic form of the Eames stool is the result of a process that gives wood veneer the extra flexibility it needs to be molded into the complex curves of a single-from wood shell. The result brings a touch of style to any setting. Eames Molded Wood Stools are available in several veneers. The 4-leg base comes in bar- or counter-height, and offers its own choice of finish options. Black and chrome 4 leg stools have black glides while the white stool has white glides.

Eames

Husband and wife team Charles (1907-1978) and Ray (1912-1988) Eames played a major role in the world of modern architecture and furniture, as well as working in industrial and graphic design, fine art, and film. Charles completed two years of study at Washington University in St. Louis. With his design and life partner Ray, he designed prize-winning furniture that expanded upon the wood molding techniques of Alvar Aalto. Ray-Bernice Alexandra Kaiser Eames began as an abstract expressionist painter, having graduated from Bennett Women’s College in Millbrook, NY and later studying under Hans Hoffman while living in New York City. She co-founded the American Abstract Artists and has a painting in the Whitney museum’s permanent collection.
Herman Miller was a West Michigan businessman who helped his son-in-law, D.J. De Pree, buy the Michigan Star Furniture Company in 1923. De Pree had been working at the company, which opened in 1905, since he was hired in 1909 as a clerk. De Pree knew his father-in-law was a man of integrity, so he decided to rename the company after him. By the middle of the 20th century, the name Herman Miller had become synonymous with modern furniture. Working with legendary designers George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, the company produced pieces that would become classics of industrial design.
