Black Set (4) Herman Miller Original Eames Molded Plywood DCM Dining Chair Metal
An original set of Herman Miller and Eames designed plywood DCM chairs; these black wooden beauties 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.
These particular examples will require a little bit of love and care due to being used and enjoyed well. However, the integrity of the chairs is still as good as the day they left the factory. Some time spent on the black finish of these chairs will help restore them to their former glory.
Whilst newer examples of the iconic design, these chairs 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 these particular items.
