Authentic Form Achieved with 3-D Technology

Achieved with the help of today's 3-D veneer technology, the authentic form of the Eames Molded Wood Chair is the result of a process that gives wood veneer the extra flexibility it needs to be molded into the complex curves of a single shell.

The technology that enables us to mold wood veneer into three-dimensional shapes didn't exist even five years ago. The technique cuts standard wood veneer into tiny strips, with a result that appears seamless. It's a process that demonstrates the kind of discovery and evolution that Charles and Ray Eames so greatly valued, allowing the material to take on the authentic form of the original Eames design for the first time as a single wood shell.
