Plywood Mobile, Model A - des Charles and Ray Eames, 1941


By: Vitra

Oh, it's fab!  Two abstract, organically shaped plywood elements that playfully revolve around one another.

In the early 1940s, Charles and Ray Eames conducted a series of experiments for the purpose of refining their plywood moulding techniques. Their investigations led to these Plywood Mobiles, whose biomorphic shapes are strongly reminiscent of Ray's artwork and graphics. The couple hung the mobiles from the ceiling of their apartment in Los Angeles.

Material: aircraft plywood, black lacquer finish. 

The mobile is 320mm wide, 420mm high plus of course your choice of drop.
