Herman Miller Eames Storage Unit, 4 x 2
designed by Charles and Ray Eames
At A Glance:
The Eames Storage Unit is true to the inventive originals introduced in 1950. Designed as both storage place and display cabinet, it is a striking example of how Charles and Ray Eames extended the boundaries of design to create a new modern aesthetic for the office and home. Long before "modularity" and "high tech" entered the design lexicon, Charles and Ray Eames were using industrial production techniques to provide ample storage, work, and display space. Available in Vibrant or Neutral color scheme.
What's To Like:
Variety! Storage cabinets are commonly boring as all get out, just straight lines and monochromatic laminate. The Eames Storage Unit melts those constraints away with formed plywood cabinet doors, visible-grain drawer fronts, hardwood sides, color panels, crossed wire, and the steel structure that holds the whole shelving unit together. Love it.
What's Not To Like:
Well, the cost is high, if you're only shopping for a storage unit. However, if you're shopping for an icon, a beloved feature of your home, or an immortal design, the price tag for the Eames Storage Unit is totally justifiable.
The Bottom Line:
The Eames Storage Unit does the dirty work of storage without ever breaking a sweat, and its beautiful, mid-century modern design is simply brilliant. Its lines remind us of some of the homes that Charles Eames designed, and the light that its open sides allows through give it a quality few storage units have - spaciousness.
