Black Herman Miller Original Eames Molded Plywood DCM Dining Chair Metal Base
This black wood, original Herman Miller and Eames Dining Chair Metal base or DCM chair looks fantastic and would bring depth of colour and style to any room. Available as a pair or individually, the textured wood finish with its bold black colouring looks exquisite on its shiny metal base whilst providing the comfort one comes to expect from an Eames product.
The product of the Eames’s experimentation with molded plywood, the molded plywood series of chairs were available initially in two guises, the LCW and the DCW and then later with the addition of the LCM and the DCM chairs. The LCW and DCW being constructed from a wooden base and wooden seat and back-rest whilst the LCM and DCM had a metal frame with wooden seat and back-rest.
Herman Miller have faithfully continued these chairs and introduced additional finishes to the standard oak plywood finish.
As a newer version of the iconic DCM chair, this particular example is in very good condition with only some light signs of wear reflective of its age. The trivalent metal frame is also in good condition though a quick clean will help increase its shine.
The label on the underside of the seat indicates this DCM was produced in 2008.
The Eames Molded Plywood series are a very popular chair, whether it be the all wood version or the metal and wood mix. Vintage versions, of course, ask more depending upon condition but newer versions will steadily find themselves to be just as desirable.
