The DCW wooden chair bears witness to the ultimate success of Charles and Ray Eames’ early experiments in molding plywood into complex shapes. Made entirely of wood, this iconic chair looks as contemporary as the day it was first designed.
Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with new techniques to produce three-dimensional molded plywood seat covers that conform to the curves of the human body. They achieved this with the chairs in the Plywood Group, which have matured into classics with a look that still looks contemporary today.
For the Plywood Group, they also combined seats and backs with different bases. Thanks to the organic shape of the plywood shells and the slightly flexible seat backs, these lightweight and compact chairs offer great comfort, even in non-upholstered versions.
