As Charles and Ray Eames saw it, designers just want to have “serious fun”. This undulating screen, 1,730-mm high, is one result of their play. It’s a portable, foldable and enjoyable way to divide space, provide a backdrop and create privacy. The screen was designed as a complement to other Eames moulded plywood creations. It’s also a stand-alone piece and distinctive in all kinds of settings.
Five-ply strength. The screen’s maple inner plies are sandwiched between light ash, walnut, natural cherry or ebony veneers to resist warping and separation.
Six U-shaped sections. Each section is 254-mm across; the screen unfolds to around 1,520-mm in length and just 57-mm in thickness.
