Charles and Ray Eames storage unit featuring three drawers in the top area. Side and back panels feature the sought after primary color combination of red, blue, grey, white and black. The shelf comes in good original condition with patina. Manufactured by Herman Miller. Ray Eames and her husband Charles significantly have contributed to the development of US post-war design. In 1940 together with colleague and friend Eero Saarinen they won the MoMA Organic Design in Home Furnishings competition. As with Saarinen, the close and interchanging lifelong relationship between fellow industrial designer George Nelson and Charles Eames is visible in their work.
