Black Herman Miller Original Eames Molded Plywood DCM Dining Chair Metal
An original Herman Miller and Eames designed plywood DCM chair; this black wooden beauty will compliment any living or dining space. The DCM Chair is an addition to Charles and Ray’s celebrated DCW Plywood Chair, but uses the metal frame instead of the wooden one on the DCW. Due to its popularity, the DCM chair was introduced to bring an alternative choice to the fashionable piece.
The construction of the DCM, much like the DCW, proved to be challenging and it eventually took aircraft inspired shock mounts stuck to the frame with glue set using radio waves to make the chair work. These shock mounts later inspired the ones found on many fiberglass chairs for the many different bases that were produced.
This particular example will require a little bit of love and care due to being used and enjoyed well. However, the integrity of the chair is still as good as the day it left the factory. Some time spent on the black finish of these chairs will help restore it to its former glory.
Whilst being a newer example of the iconic design, this chair will be slow to increase in value; however, due to the popularity and history behind these chairs, they will continue to be sought-after helping to increase the interest in this particular item.
