In 1949, Charles & Ray Eames developed a new system of free-standing multifunctional shelves which, similar to the Eames House that dates from the same time, were constructed strictly in keeping with the principles of industrial mass production.

The ESU (Eames Storage Unit) Shelf is reproduced here by Vitra and includes a number of configurations from one shelf to four shelves.

Vitra have collaborated with Hella Jongerius to create a new colour concept for this design classic. This version provides a more contemporary look to the original with a subtle colour palette, still celebrating the spirit of the 1940s and 1950s. The hues of grey, brown, red and orange are combined with black powder coated metal surfaces to offer a striking contrast. The feet can be levelled individually.

Designed by

Charles & Ray Eames

American husband and wife design duo Charles and Ray Eames have had a profound influence on the visual character of American life, producing original work within the fields of architecture, furniture design, industrial design, manufacturing and the photographic arts.

The Eames’ first partnered with Vitra in 1957 to produce some of the most iconic pieces of furniture in the history of interior design. Today Vitra continues to reflect their philosophy on design and functionality, best understood through Charles’ own words: “Recognising the need is the primary condition for the design”.
