Plywood Lounge Chair
The LCW chair is part of the Plywood Group collection by the design couple Charles & Ray Eames. LCW stands for Lounge Chair Wood and thus describes exactly the essence of the chair: an elegant lounge chair, made entirely of the best wood.
In many years of experimentation, Charles and Ray Eames sought new methods of optimally adapting three-dimensionally shaped plywood to the shapes of the human body. The LCW, with its seat, backrest and moulded plywood basess, is now also available in a hide cover, as introduced at the 1946 launch.
Extraordinary Seating Comfort
For the production of the Plywood Group, wood layers are bent into shape. The thin wooden shells of the back and seat support the body with the slightly curved surfaces. The individual elements are attached to the frame with elastic rubber discs, providing additional seating comfort.
For Vitra, the encounter with the legendary design couple Charles and Ray Eames was of fundamental importance: The production of their designs in 1957 was the start of the company's history as a furniture manufacturer. Charles and Ray Eames Vitra were not only recognised for their products, but also for their understanding of design and how they ran the company to this day in a decisive way.
The LCW chair is also available in other colours and with a hide cover.
