In 1949, Charles and Ray Eames developed an innovative system of freestanding, multifunctional shelves and desks. Similar to the simultaneously constructed Eames House, these designs adhered to the principles of industrial production. Following the success of the ESU over the years, Vitra and Hella Jongerius have combined forces to create a newer, fresher look for the classic storage unit. Featuring a black powder coated metal fromae, the colours used on the panels and doors have been swapped to more muted tones of greys, beiges and oranges. They have also expanded the range to include a 1, 2 and 3 height shelving unit, as well as the original 4 height shelving unit.
