Declared the “Best Design of the 20th Century” by Time magazine, this chair by Charles and Ray Eames is still crafted using the groundbreaking plywood molding techniques the duo invented in the early 1940s

The Eames Molded Plywood Dining Chair Metal Base, known as DCM, is a classic example of the Eameses’ philosophy of using honest materials. The chair, designed in 1946, uses two pieces of molded plywood and metal rods for support creating supreme body-cradling comfort. The gentle curves and comfort created from the molding process of a hard material established a foundation for future modern design.

A chair with a unique process to construct and a timeless design earned it the right to be named the Best Design of the 20th Century by Time magazine. The runner up was the steam locomotive.

Seat is at an upright angle, perfect for dining.
