The Decor8 DCW Wood Dining Chair is made from quality heat pressured 5-ply moulded plywood inspired by retro 1940’s design. The DCW Chair was one of the original in a series of plywood chairs designed by husband-and-wife team Charles and Ray Eames. They created collaboratively in the fascinating design of chairs, tables, and other pieces of furniture that combined mass production with aesthetic value, functionality, and comfort. The Eameses experimented with emerging technology, incorporating processes such as steam-bending plywood into their designs.
Strong, light, durable, moldable and organic in their appearances, plywood has granted designers in 20th century the flexibility in shaping in modern forms. “Plywood,” explained Popular Science magazine in 1948, “is a layer cake of lumber and glue.” It is created when three or more thin layers of wood, called veneers, are assembled with their grains perpendicular to each other and then are bound together with glue and high pressure with heat. Unlike natural wood, the resulting material does not shrink, swell, or split when exposed to moisture which results in a longer lifespan. The Eameses first experimented with plywood in 1940 for the DCW Wood Dining Chair, but their early designs did not allow for complex curves that could be relaxing and comfortable without upholstery. They then spent the next five years experimenting until they found a way to both bend and mold plywood, creating compound curves that were optimal for the seating positions of human bodies.

The Decor8 DCW Wood Dining Chair pairs well with most dining tables or as a stand alone side or lounge chair.
