Laminated wood lounge chair
The LCW chair (Lounge Chair Wood) is part of the Plywood Group collection of 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 experiments, Charles and Ray Eames looked for new methods of adapting three-dimensionally shaped plywood to the shapes of the human body in the best possible way. The LCW, in which both the seat and backrest as well as the base frame are made of deformed laminated wood, is now available again with a fur covering, as it was presented at its market launch in 1946.
Exceptional seating comfort
For the production of the Plywood Group, layers of wood 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 washers, providing additional seating comfort.
For Vitra , the encounter with the legendary design couple Charles and Ray Eames was of fundamental importance: The history of the company as a furniture manufacturer began in 1957 with the production of their designs. But Charles and Ray Eames did not only make their mark on Vitra with their products. With their understanding of design, they also determined the values and orientation of the company in a decisive way and to this day.
The LCW chair is also available in other colours and with fur cover.
