Eames® Molded Plywood Dining Chair Wood Base (DCW)

Starting From

Designed by Charles and Ray Eames for Herman Miller®
Hailed by Time magazine as the Best Design of the 20th Century, the iconic DCW or “Dining Chair Wood” (1946) began as an experiment in the Eameses’ apartment, where they were molding plywood in what they called the “Kazam! Machine.” The machine pressed thin sheets of wood veneer against a heated membrane that was inflated by a bicycle pump. Humble beginnings for what would become one of the world’s most widely recognized and highly coveted chairs.

Expertly crafted with a molded seat and back (no bike pumps are used today), this chair supports you in a comfortable ergonomic position while rubber shock mounts buffer against jarring movement. This original is an authentic product of Herman Miller®, Inc. Eames is a licensed trademark of Herman Miller. Made in U.S.A.
