Fresh Finds: Eames + McCobb: Aluminum + Planner Group

. Wednesday, March 9, 2011

An impressive piece from McCobb's Planner Group, a modular system of stacking units he designed in 1949. This 4-drawer chest is actually comprised of 3 units: a table base, a single drawer unit, and a triple drawer unit. McCobb's trademark ring-pulls are all intact.

A classic Management Chair from the Eames Aluminum Group (check out my previous post on the history of this iconic design). This example has been reupholstered in a deep wine nubby fabric. The pedestal base features sculpted polished aluminum legs, denoting second series production.

Signed with impressed factory marks. Multiple chairs are available.

Via Modern Love, with many more great finds to come.
