Vitra Eames LCW Calf's Skin Plywood Group Lounge Chair

LCW which boasts a seat and backrest made of moulded wooden laminate is now available once again with hide or leather covers - the way it was first launched on the market back in 1946.

Upholstery: thin foam padding, covered in lcalfskin hide (LCW Calf‘s Skin).
Base: moulded plywood with same face veneer as the back and seat. Seat and backrest attached to the base with shock mounts (bonded rubber and metal connectors).
