"The details are not details. They make the product. The connections. It will in the end be these details that give the product its life."
Charles and Ray Eames noted that U-shaped cross sections of plywood from their early molding experiments were stable enough to stand alone. To make their screen, they joined the sections with canvas hinges and a synthetic adhesive developed during World War II. Today, a polypropylene mesh held securely by a new process ensures a longer life without compromising the integrity of the 1946 design. You get a portable, foldable, enjoyable way to divide space and give privacy.
With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray Eames turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Lean and modern. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."
The molded plywood folding screen is a portable, foldable, beautiful way to divide a space, create an arresting backdrop or provide privacy. It features six panels connected by woven polypropylene mesh. The hardwood inner ply is sandwiched by natural face veneers available in your choice of four finish options.
