Eames Molded Wood Counter Stool
by Herman Miller
designed by Charles and Ray Eames
At A Glance:
The Molded Wood Counter Stool is a further development of the chair the Eames duo would have made back in the '50s if that darned plywood had cooperated. And now, with the help of 3-D veneer technology, Herman Miller has figured out how to make the Eames' vision work. The result of a process that gives wood veneer the extra flexibility it needs to be molded into the complex curves of a single shell, the Molded Wood Counter Stool stands as a fitting compliment to the great designers who dreamed it up.
What's to Like:
- This stool is iconic to the extreme. Not simply "Eames-inspired," the Molded Wood Counter Stool is the realization of their very idea of what could be possible with molded plywood.
- High quality, lightweight hardwood inner plies are sandwiched between natural wood face veneers for exceptional strength and beauty.
- The juxtaposition of the Eames Molded Wood Counter Stool's wood seat and metal base makes for exceptional visual balance and grace.
- The technology used is incredible. "3-D veneer technology" means that the wood is sliced into super-thin strips and then glued back together. The resulting flexibility reduces the thickness needed for the veneer and allows it to be molded in ways that it never could before.
The Eames Molded Wood Counter Stool is comfortable, elegant, and features a familiar - yet updated - form. This Herman Miller stool is for fans of mid-century icons and lovers of historic design alike.
