Eames Storage Unit ESU Bookcase


Designed by Charles and Ray Eames
Manufactured by Vitra

In collaboration with the Eames Office and Dutch designer Hella Jongerius, a carefully defined new colour scheme has been chosen to give the ESU a fresh and contemporary look while still celebrating the spirit of the 1940s and ’50s. The ESU Bookcase has four shelf levels which correspond to the height of standard ring binders. Fitted with drawers and sliding doors, it provides ample storage space.

Dimensions: Height 148cm x Width 120cm x Depth 43cm. Materials: Metal surfaces with a black powder-coated finish. Shelves in maple plywood with birch face veneer and a transparent lacquer finish.

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: the Eames Storage Unit (ESU) and the Eames Desk Unit (EDU).
