ilovedust x Eames

Constructed from sculpted forms of moulded plywood, the DCW chair was designed by Ray and Charles Eames in 1946 to comfortably fit the body. These now iconic pieces of furniture have endured to become mid-century modern day classics.

ilovedust have sought to complement the chair’s aesthetic integrity with a tailor-made design drawing inspiration from the relationship between the designers. Based on a dialogue conducted between Ray and Charles during the unveiling of the chair on the Arlene Francis ‘Home’ show broadcast in 1956, each chair has a unique pattern pertaining to one of the designers. The chairs tell a his and hers story with different quotes from each designer and draw heavily on graphics of the time, producing an overall 1950s aesthetic and enhancing one of the most recognisable and prolific pieces of modern design. Each pattern was carefully applied by hand, making these exclusive classics a must-have one of a kind.

The design also runs across a limited edition set of green and blue printed cushions. As a final addition, a specially commissioned hand-screened print is available to buy.
