Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with new processes for optimizing the way three-dimensionally moulded plywood fits the contours of the body. Today, LCW, with its moulded plywood seat, backrest and base, is once again available with a hide cover, as was the case when it was launched in 1946.

LCW = Lounge Chair Wood

In order to produce the Plywood Group layers of plywood are bent, pressed into shape and then hardened. The gently curving surfaces of the thin wooden back and seat shells give support to the body. Individual elements are fixed to the frame by means of supple rubber discs, which increase sitting comfort.

Materials:
moulded ash plywood; the seat and backrest sections connected to the base by means of rubber/metal elements (shock mounts).

Design:
Charles and Ray Eames, 1945/46
