Eames Leg Splint 1942

During WW2, the Eames created a light-weight and low-cost leg splint for the US Navy using plywood. After the introduction of the new material they have found the merits of plywood were suitable for mass production. This strong, low-cost plywood has a beautiful smooth surface and became an indispensable material for Eames creations.
