As Charles and Ray Eames saw it, designers just want to have "serious fun." This 173-cm-high, undulating screen resulted from their play. It's a portable, foldable, enjoyable way to divide space, provide a backdrop, and add privacy. The screen was designed as a complement to other Eames molded plywood creations. It's also a stand-alone piece distinctive in all kinds of settings. Classic construction five-ply strength.
The screen's maple inner plies are sandwiched between light ash, walnut or ebony veneers to resist warping and separation. Six U-shaped sections. Each section is 25 cm long; the screen unfolds to 152 cm long and just 5.5 cm thick.
A durable, woven polypropylene mesh connects the six plywood sections so it's easy to adjust the footprint. Folds for storage. Easy to carry and tucks neatly away.
