Part of the Plywood Group by Charles and Ray Eames. The Eames LCW is a unique lounge chair, made with moulded plywood for a comfortable organic form.
The LCW (Lounge Chair Wood) is available in various finishes, a natural ash, black ash and bold red stained ash. This elegant lounge chair provides comfortable seat even without the help of padding or upholstery. This is down to its ergonomic contours and the slight flex provided by the moulded plywood shell.
Designers 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.
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.
