Santos Pair (2) Herman Miller Original Eames Molded Plywood DCM Dining Chair Metal Base
The pinnacle of plywood perfection. These santos wood original Eames Herman Miller DCM Dining Chair Metals arrest the attention of anyone who passes them. Available as a pair or individually, these sumptuous wood finished beauties with their rich grain look exquisite on their shiny trivalent metal bases 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 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 newer versions of the iconic DCM chair, these particular examples are in very good used condition. The trivalent metal frames are also in good condition.
These beautifully finished chairs are very difficult to find outside of the USA and will make a fantastic addition, and investment piece, to any home.
Please note, due to the unique finish Santos Palisander provides, the exact finish of these chairs may differ slightly to the image.
The label on the underside of the seats indicate these DCMs are newer examples 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 the premium option, these chairs command a reasonable asking price, but this should only aid with their interest over time.
