Leg Splint

Charles & Ray Eames
1940s
Ref. 1010413

Moulded plywood. Stamped "Molded Plywood Division, Los Angeles, California".

Designed 1941-1942, produced 1942-1945. Charles and Ray Eames designed a lightweight, inexpensive leg splint for the United States Navy During World War II. The resulting design is a highly sculptural yet functional device that could be mass-produced plus conveniently and inexpensively transported. In its three-dimensional, biomorphic form, the leg splint suggests the Eames' subsequent, highly influential plywood furniture designs.

Produced by Evans Products Co USA.
