Charles & Ray Eames developed the Eames Desk Unit in 1949 as a part of a new system of free-standing multi-functional shelves and a writing desk. These were designed in line with their house that dates around the same time. Manufactured in a plywood and maple veneer with coloured lacquer screens, the metal surfaces are black powder coated. The Eames Desk Unit has individual height adjustable feet. Works fantastically with the EDU Bookshelves and Shelving Unit.  New colours in muted tones introduced in 2014.
