Santos Herman Miller Original Eames Molded Plywood DCM Dining Chair Metal Base
The pinnacle of plywood perfection. This santos wood original Eames Herman Miller DCM Dining Chair Metal will be the centre of attention wherever it is placed. Also available as a pair, this sumptuous wood finished beauty with its rich grain looks exquisite on its shiny trivalent metal base whilst providing the comfort one comes to expect from an Eames product.
The product of the Eames’s experimentation with molded plywood, the molded plywood series of chairs were available initially in two guises, the LCW and the DCW and then later with the addition of the LCM and the DCM chairs. The LCW and DCW being constructed from a wooden base and wooden seat and back-rest whilst the LCM and DCM has a trivalent metal frame with wooden seat and back-rest.
Herman Miller have faithfully continued these chairs and introduced additional finishes to the standard oak plywood finish.
As a newer version of the iconic DCM chair, this particular example is in good used condition but does show some slight signs of its age with a slightly faded area on the backrest, price does reflect this. The trivalent metal frame is also in good condition.
This beautifully finished chair is very difficult to find outside of the USA and will make a fantastic addition, and investment piece, to any home.
Please note, due to the unique finish Santos Palisander provides, the exact finish of the chair may differ slightly to the image.
The label on the underside of the seat indicates this DCM is a newer example from Herman Miller.
The Eames Molded Plywood series are a very popular chair, whether it be the all wood version or the metal and wood mix. Vintage versions, of course, ask more depending upon condition but newer versions will steadily find themselves to be just as desirable. Being the premium option, this chair commands a reasonable asking price, but this should only aid its interest over time.
