Ash Herman Miller Original Eames Molded Plywood DCW Dining Chair Wooden Base
This is the iconic DCW Chair in a beautiful ash finish. The original Eames design, by Herman Miller, still captures everyone’s eye and is extremely comfortable. Being the all wood variant of this iconic chair, the style of the chair means it works in any modern environment making it hard to believe this is a 50+ year old design!
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 has a trivalent 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As a newer version of the iconic DCW chair, this particular example is in very good used condition. The wooden base is in a good used condition. Chair may appear lighter in person than on images, please ask for further pictures.
The label on the underside of the seat indicates this DCW is a newer example from Herman Miller.
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. Being a great example of the original all wooden design, this chair is slightly lower in its initial investment value but is a good chair to own.
