An early Eames masterwork, the Vitra LCM Eames Plywood Chair has truly stood the test of time since its introduction in the mid-1940s. Despite having been a mainstay of interior design for nigh on eight decades, the LCM still looks achingly contemporary, and carries itself with a level of desirability scant seen. With the Plywood Group, the Eames's truly mastered the use of plywood as a material in the construction of hyper-comfortable furniture, with this leather-upholstered take on the lounge chair offering perhaps the most sumptuous of all of the LCM seats. The wider LCM range of Plywood Group chairs includes standard and calf-skin configurations.
American husband and wife design duo Charles and Ray Eames have had a profound influence on the visual character of American life, producing original work within the fields of architecture, furniture design, industrial design, manufacturing and the photographic arts.
The Eames’ first partnered with Vitra in 1957 to produce some of the most iconic pieces of furniture in the history of interior design. Today Vitra continues to reflect their philosophy on design and functionality, best understood through Charles’ own words: “Recognising the need is the primary condition for the design”.
