Designers: Charles and Ray Eames
The Eames molded plywood folding screen is a portable, foldable, beautiful way to divide space, create an arresting backdrop, or provide privacy, offered in a range of veneers from white ash to walnut to ebony-stained ash.
The molded plywood screen that Charles and Ray Eames created is one of their oldest designs, but it still looks fresh in today's homes.
First manufactured in 1946, the undulating "waves" of the screen continue to stand as room dividers, privacy panels, and as backdrops to highlight other pieces of furniture or art objects. Moving or storing it is easy: Pick it up, fold it up, tuck it away.

Sandwiching the screen's inner plies between veneers yields sturdy, five-ply molded plywood sections that resist warping and separation. The screen is made of six U-shaped sections, each 10 inches wide. It unfolds to five feet wide and just 2¼ inches thick.
The screen folds up so it's easy to carry and tuck neatly away.
