Abstract, bold shaped plywood elements that playfully revolve around one another.

During the early 1940s, Charles and Ray Eames ran a number of experiments to refine their plywood molding techniques. These tests evolved into the creation of the two hanging Eames Plywood Mobiles, whose drifting shapes were similar to the biomorphic forms found in many of Ray’s artwork and graphics.

Two distinct abstract shapes interact with each other to create the mobiles.

Charles & Ray Eames

Molded Plywood

As the Second World War began, Charles and Ray were eager to aid in the wartime efforts “without hurting anybody.” From this non-aggressive point-of-view, the Eameses (then operating as the Molded Plywood Division of the Evans Products Company) mass-produced leg splits, body litters, and aircraft parts from molded plywood.
