The LCW Chair was designed for Vitra by the designer couple Charles and Ray Eames as a part of the Plywood Group Collection. LCW stands for "Lounge Chair Wood": LCW is an elegant lounge chair and is made of the best wood.
Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with new processes for optimizing the way three-dimensionally moulded plywood fits the contours of the body. The result was the Plywood Group, with its moulded plywood seat, backrest and base. The organic shape and the wood's cosy warmth invite users to sit down and relax.
For the production of the Plywood Group are wood layers bent. The thin wood shells from back to seat support the body with lightly bent areas. The single elements are tied up with elastic rubber layers on the base. They give you extra comfort.
The meeting with the legendary designer couple Charles and Ray Eames was for Vitra a fundamental meaning: With the production of their designs in 1957 started the history of the manufacturer as a furniture producer. Charles and Ray Eames impressed Vitra a lot.
The LCW Chair is also available in different colours and with felt cover.Also in our blog:
