With rigorous, hard work and unwavering determination the Eames Office finally found the “honest use of plywood”. They wanted to push the material as far as it could go and in doing so they created the LCW, named ‘Chair of the Century’ by Time Magazine.
The culmination of style, functionality and determinism, the LCW is the epitome of a perfect occasional chair, it works throughout your home.
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”.
