Vitra Eames LCM Plywood Group Chair
Designer: Charles & Ray Eames 1945/46
This is an original genuine Vitra piece.
With their chair designs Charles and Ray Eames frequently created variations by combining one seat shell with different base frames. Thus the Plywood Group was available from the outset with a chromed tubular steel base making the design appear lighter and creating a certain tension in the contrast of two materials. Alongside models with no upholstery the Easeses also designed versions with cowhide upholstery. The covers rest on a thin wedge of foam to provide additional comfort.
Materials: Back/seat: moulded plywood with face veneer in ash or walnut.
Base: tubular steel, chrome-plated or powder-coated. Seat and backrest attached to the base with shock mounts (bonded rubber and metal connectors).
Dimensions: Width: 56cm x Depth: 63.5cm x Height: 65cm (Seat height: 31.5cm)
