Pass thru any airport or modern apartment, and you will see the impact of plywood on the furniture industry. This video tribute is to Charles Eames, the postwar furniture designer. See his struggle with shaping the compound curves in plywood chairs in 1940s and the TV debut of the Eames Lounge Chair that Herman Miller still has in daily production.
