ESU Shelving Unit



Designed in 1949 by iconic duo Charles and Ray Eames as part of a system of free-standing multi-functional pieces, the ESU Shelving Unit is an instantly recognisable design classic.

Collaborating with Dutch designer Hella Jongerius, Vitra introduced this new colour scheme to give the ESU a fresh and contemporary look while continuing to celebrate the spirit of the 1940s and '50s.

Expertly crafted from maple-veneered plywood, the unit features coloured lacquered screens, metal surfaces and chromed, height-adjustable legs.

An elegant and distinctive design, the ESU Storage Unit is instantly recognisable as an authentic Eames piece and is crafted to exacting standards by prestigious collective Vitra.
