ESU the Eames Storage Unit, introduced in 1950. These units demonstrate the knack Charles and Ray Eames had for using industrial production techniques to extend the boundaries of design and create a whole new look. A result of work they had done for a 1949 exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Arts, these pieces reveal the “machine aesthetic” and Japanese influences important to the Eameses at the time. The ESU was manufactured by Herman Miller from 1950 to 1955 and again from 1998 onwards.
