Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with new techniques for producing three-dimensionally moulded plywood seat shells that conformed to the contours of the human body. They achieved this with the chairs in the Plywood Group, which have matured into classics with an appearance that still looks contemporary today. For the Plywood Group, they also combined chair tops with different bases. Thanks to the organic shape of the plywood shells and the slightly flexible backrests, these light and compact chairs are extremely comfortable – also in the versions without upholstery.
LCW = Lounge Chair Wood.
Back/seat: moulded ash plywood, natural, red or black stained finish.
Base: moulded plywood with a finish that matches the colour of the seat shell. Seat and backrest attached to the base with shock mounts (bonded
rubber and metal connectors).
Please see image - Seat height measured at the rear third of the seat surface.
