Walnut Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Eames LCW Moulded Plywood Chairs
A chair the Eames’s became famous for. These original examples of Herman Miller’s ‘Lounge Chair Wooden’ is sumptuous with their walnut finish. One of the earliest dreams the Eames’s had was to design and build a chair out of 1 piece of moulded wood. Due to the nature of wood, this proved difficult, however, their hard work resulted in arguably one of the most comfortable lounge chairs around constructed from wood.
Made available in a Dining Chair format too, these chairs saw much success. So much so the Eames’s produced the chairs with a trivalent metal frame too, known as DCMs, or Dining Chair Metal, and LCM, Lounge Chair Metal which utilized the moulded wooden seat and back rests. The back and seat rests are fixed to the frames through the innovative rubber shock mounts originally used as engine shock-absorbers in Chrysler engines.
This particular version is a newer variant, introduced by Herman Miller adding to the range available and is finished in a gorgeous dark walnut finish creating a real statement piece for any home, especially when it is available on its own or as a pair.
Being newer, es-display, examples, these LCWs are in a good used condition. One chair is a little more used than the other with some slight surface scratching to the backrest - price does reflect this.
The walnut finish is superb, as you would expect for a Herman Miller product.
A product rare to find within Europe, these particular examples will be a great investment and design piece to own.
The Eames Plywood range are much coveted pieces. Original Evan’s produced chairs, the original producer of these chairs, can ask a very high price. As is the case with these types of products, investment value is determined by many various factors; age, condition, factory of origin and even the colour can all help determine the pieces’ value. Excellent examples of original Herman Miller chairs, they command a reasonable asking price but should prove to be great investment pieces over time.
