Description

Treat yourself to an ORIGINAL iconic piece by Vitra. An original will always hold its value. It will stay with you for your whole life and outlast you, to be passed on to the next generation. Swiss design house Vitra is the only company authorised to manufacture Charles & Ray Eames products for Europe: if you own an Eames product manufactured by Vitra, you can be sure it’s an original. Charles and Ray Eames are two of the most important designers of the 20th century. It was in 1949 that Charles and Ray Eames developed their innovative desk and shelving system, called the Eames Desk Unit (EDU) and Eames Storage Unit (ESU) respectively, inspired by the same aesthetic as the iconic Eames House. Nestled on the heights of Los Angeles, the home of the famous couple of designers mixes natural wood and black metal. It is recognisable by its facades brought to life by panels of primary colours, which give it the air of a Mondrian painting. Much like the Eames house, built at the same time, the ESU shelving units and EDU desk were designed according to the principles of industrial series production. The EDU desk combines a wooden top and shelves with a structure and perforated panel in black lacquered steel. Colourful aluminium panels punctuate the spaces, adding rhythm and a playful dimension. The shelves correspond to the standard height of files.? In collaboration with the Eames Office, Dutch designer Hella Jongerius gave the ESU shelves and EDU desk a new lease of life by revising their chromatic range. A new assortment of colours has been carefully defined to add a touch of freshness and modernity, while retaining the vintage spirit of 1949 and 1950.?
