This iconic chair began as an experiment in the apartment of Eames, where they were molding plywood in what they called the “Kazam! Machine.” The machine pressed thin sheets of wood veneer against a heated membrane that was inflated by a bicycle pump. Who would have guessed that these beginnings would develop into one of the world’s most widely recognized and highly coveted chairs. Low-slung, with an expertly crafted molded seat and back, the DCM (1946) cradles you in a extremely comfortable position. Its form relates directly to the human body and holds no secrets as to how it succeeds technically. The metal base provides superior strength, while rubber shock mounts buffer against jarring movement. This modern classic is sure to impress even the most selective, with its impeccable quality and attention to detail.
