Eames Desk Unit EDU
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). In collaboration with the Eames Office and Dutch designer Hella Jongerius, a carefully defined new colour scheme was chosen to give the EDU a fresh and contemporary look while still celebrating the spirit of the 1940s and '50s. With its eye-catching combination of coloured panels, the EDU desk adds a cheerful and inviting accent to the home office. The panels also function as a modesty shield and partially enclose the two storage compartments. The metal support frame is height-adjustable to accommodate uneven floors.
