  • Vitra - Prouvé Standard SP Chair
    connox.com
    Vitra - Prouvé Standard SP Chair
    The Standard Chair, made in 1934, belongs to the classic pieces of design history. The characteristic Vitra chair by Jean Prouvé is desired again today. Inspired by the furniture competition for the Cité Universitaire of Nancy, Jeans Prouvé started to combine metal and wood in the 30s- He used the resistance of steel for the stability of the Standard Chair’s base. The backrest and the seat, parts that contact the user’s body, he made of shaped plywood. The characteristic shape of the Prouvé Standard Chair came from one deciding idea: The load of a chair lies on the back feet, the weight of the body must be held there. That easy recognition was realized by the designer and constructor Jean Prouvé on an embossing way: While the less loaded front feet are made of a steel tube, the back feet of the Vitra Standard Chair are voluminous hollow bodies, porting the load they carry to the ground.

    The Organic Conference is a classic piece of furniture, which isn’t really a classic: The chair by the design legends Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen couldn’t be produced in series because of a lack of technique in the 1940s. It was vitalized by Vitra in 2006 for the first time. Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen created a complete series of Oranic Chairs in different editions for the competition “Organic Design in Home Furnishing” of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in 1941. The designs were futuristic formally, but they weren’t produced because of a lack of technique then. The organic seat could only be produced and distributed in bigger amounts later, so were the Eames Plastic Chair by Charles & Ray Eames or the Tulip Chair by Eero Saarinen. Vitra and the Vitra Design Museum vitalized the classic piece in 2006 with the first serial production of the Organic Chair, the Organic Highback with high backrest and headrest followed in 2008. The shape of the seats of the Organic Chairs is adapted to the seat demands of the human body. The user sits in a lower, slightly backwards inclined position in the reading chairs Organic Chair and Organic Highback, while the Organic Conference is slightly higher and more upright, supporting sitting at a table.

    Vitra - .06 Armchair
    The .06 Armchair of Vitra is mint by the same formal intransigence as the .05 Armchair. Both were designed by Maarten van Severen, who considered to give them a reduced look. The large comfort of the .06 Armchair developes by using it: The soft, made of integral skin foam, leaf springs in seat and back rest arranges a dynamic feeling while sitting down, and the highest comfort, and laziness. The tubular frame of the armchair is made of stainless steel, which makes it really flexible, and resistant to outward influences. Because of that, it is really suitable for the outside, too.

    Vitra Prouvé Cité Lounge Chair
    Design Jean Prouvé, 1930. Steel frame, fabric or leather, leather straps. Made in Germany by Vitra. "Prouvé combines the soul of an engineer with that of an architect" -Le Corbusier. The Cité lounge chair is one of Prouvé's earlier furniture designs and it fits perfectly in the modern home where Prouvé himself used it. Jean Prouvé was a "constructeur" a builder and designer who created furniture that still looks crisply modern seventy years after they were designed. The Cité lounge has the trademark Prouvé rational-sculptural aesthetic courtesy of his formal engineering training. By sitting in this chair you are well on your way to discovering the sublime and sophisticated qualities that are unique to Prouvé designs. Construction notes: Frame made of sheet steel, lacquered finish in red, black or cream. Single piece fabric cover in black, beige, tobacco and nero leather. Upholstered neck support cushion. Armrests are made of thick natural saddle leather straps. Please note: the natural leather for the armrests will vary in tone slightly (appear lighter or darker) for each order.

    Vitra - Fauteuil de Salon
    Jean Prouvé was a master of making an aesthetic virtue out of functional necessities. His Fauteuil de Salon is a perfect example for that skill. The armchair, which was initially re-edited by Vitra in cooperation with the French furniture label G-Star was included in the permanent collection of Vitra. The Fauteuil de Salon was created 1939. Jean Prouvé was oriented by a standard chair when he designed his Fauteuil: Massive, conic back-legs contrast the slim legs of the front-side. This had a practical reason for the constructer Prouvé: A big part of the weight of the one relaxing in the chair remains on the back-legs, which is the reason why the legs have different sizes. The combination of simple surfaces completes the architectural image, with comfortable seat and backrest. The armchair was adapted to contemporaneity by Vitra regarding the colours, after it was found in the archives of the French constructor. Something typical for Prouvé is that the constructive model is knowingly presented becoming the aesthetic characteristic. Thick cushions contrast the technically cool base of the chair with its slim armrests. The Fauteuil de Salon is a comfortable lounge chair, which is made of powder coated steel by Vitra. The cushions consist of cotton with polyurethane filling and the armrests are made of massive oak wood. The armchair is available in different colours.

    Vitra Organic Chair by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen
    Classic and comfortable small reading chair, designed in 1940. Authentically manufactured by Vitra, true to the original design. The chair was first made as a contribution to the New York MoMA's "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition. Formally speaking it was ahead of its time, but owing to the lack of manufacturing techniques, it wasn't put into series production. It was not until after 1950 that it became possible to manufacture larger quantities of organically shaped seat shells and market them. Also available is the Organic Highback. It has an elongated backrest with a moulded neck support, making it a comfortable armchair for lounging or reading. The dimensions of the armrests and seat surface, which are wider and longer than the Organic Chair, also augment the seating comfort of the highback version. Both versions are upholstered in Tonus fabric with black ash legs. Dimensions: Chair: Height 83cm x Width 73cm x Depth 68cm. Seat: Height 35cm x Width 38cm x Depth 56cm.

    Vitra - C1 Armchair
    Verner Panton already pre-recorded the shapes of the Pop Art in the 1950s. His reduced and still bribing C1 Armchair still bribes with his design clearness. Verner Panton’s career as designer reached its first climax in the end of the 1950s: The Danish pre-recorded elements of Pop Art with geometric furniture series and he clearly admitted the Scandinavian modern elegance of shaping with the processing of his frames. The most famous models of this series are those he initially made for a restaurant: Cone Chairs and Heart Cone Chairs. Verner Panton used the form of a half-sphere for the C1 Armchair, which is produced by Vitra, for the first time: Stored in a position which allows turning it and slightly inclined, the cushioned seat offers high comfort – for relaxing hours as well as to sit upright. The C1 is usable in private homes, hotels or receptions because of its clear shape, and it therefore looks even more gorgeous together with more of its kind. Vitra manufactures the C1 Armchair out of a stainless steel frame, a laminated plastic bowl and a polyurethane seat. The soft foam ergonomically adapts to the body, ensuring relaxing seat comfort.

  • Vitra - Standard Chair

    Vitra - Standard Chair
    Jean Prouvé made a big classic piece with his Standard chair: It was initially designed in 1934 and re-edited in 1950 by the French designer. Vitra interpreted the chair again and brought it to contemporaneity. A chair has to be resistant in its back legs, since there rests the weight of the body relaxing on it. This simple cognition was realized on an embossing way in the Standard chair by the designer and constructer Jean Prouvé: The backside legs of the chair are voluminous hollow bodies giving the load to the ground, while the front-legs are less loaded, consisting of steel tube. The Standard is a model for Prouvés architectural design approach: The chair follows the rules of utility and shows its construction outspokenly. The materials are as timeless as the construction: Vitra produces the Standard chair out of steel and oak wood. The chair is available in different colours.

    An iconic piece of furniture by the advocate of “new simplicity”: Jasper Morrison’s Monopod of 2008 is a sculpture in the room, which reminds us of objects out of stone or wood with its shape. Massive and heavy is how the Monopod stands on the floor and it gets younger in an elegant cone-like backrest. Monopod comes together with sofas and bigger loungers in the living room as a small visitors’ armchair, and it represents public areas thanks to its solid construction – which also makes it wonderfully suitable for entrance halls. The construction of the armchair with an interior cushioned plastic seat ensures the precise shape of the Monopod even when it is used for a longer time, and it simultaneously offers exceptional sitting comfort. The corpus of the Vitra Monopod consists of polyethylene. Seat and backrests are cushioned with comfortable polyurethane foam, while the outside is coated with leather.

In 1958 he returned to Denmark full of unconventional ideas... one of which evolved into the iconic Heart Cone Chair.

    Vitra - Miniature Aarnio Ball Chair
    With its simple, striking shape and its bright colors Eero Aarnio's Ball Chair is a typical symbol of the optimistic, consumer-oriented popular culture of the 1960s. Equally apparent is an unconcealed enthusiasm for the technical which also typifies the era: Its exposed plastic which allowed even complex shapes to be produced in series relatively easily, at the time something completely new, and its dynamic shape, reminiscent of a space capsule. The idea of this kind of mobile capsule allowing people to sit where they want within the house also anticipates the kind of living concepts discussed in the 1970s for a young, liberal society. On the outside, this gleaming, polished sphere seems cold and futuristic, but its inside reveals a space where users can feel cozy and protected. From the inside outside noise is considerably muffled, allowing users to relax in any number of positions, for example, to sit cross-legged. Mounted on a round metal base just above ground level, the sphere can be completely rotated on its own axis, so that users can vary their view from the »cave«. Ball Chair thus represents a special category of household objects. It is something between a piece of furniture and a piece of architecture and at the same time embodies both the mobile and the established, the fixed. The original of the Aarnio Ball Chair was designed by Eero Aarnio in 1965 and it is produced as 1:1 model by Adelta, Dinslaken/Germany since 1990. The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of fiberglass, aluminium and fabrics.

    Vitra - Miniature Wiggle Side Chair
    As early as the 1960s, cardboard furniture emerged as a cheap and light alternative to traditional furniture. At that time, slotting and folding as well as supports were used to ensure that the cardboard could bear sufficient weight. Nevertheless, cardboard furniture hardly had a chance against plastic furniture, which was equally light. Frank O. Gehry discovered a process which enabled cardboard furniture to be made in massive blocks – cardboard sculptures, as it were. »One day I saw a stack of corrugated cardboard in my office; it was the material I used to build my architectural models. And I started playing around with it, gluing it together and then cutting it into shape with a handsaw and a pocket-knife«. Gehry called the material made of corrugated cardboard glued in layers that ran at right angles to each other »Edge Board«. In 1972 he brought out a series of extraordinarily stable cardboard furniture called »Easy Edges«. The original of the Wiggle Side Chair was designed by Frank O. Gehry in 1972 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Vitra AG, Basel/Switzerland since 1992. The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of polyurethane and leather.

    Vitra - Miniature Favela Chair
    The Favela armed chair is one of the most striking works by the Brazilian designers Fernando and Humberto Campana. According to a statement by the brothers, the architecture of the typical shanty towns in their native country was the inspiration for the design and name of this extraordinary item of seating furniture. Like the majority of hut-like dwellings, the favela is also nailed and glued together from oddments and waste materials. The Campanas made use of small, differently-sized strips of wood, as are produced in abundance in every joinery, for their representative chair. In the Favela, they prove that objects of singular elegance and beauty can even originate from apparent mundane, worthless materials. Over and above this, the Favela throws a new light on the dynamic relationship between a one-off design and a mass-produced product. Although every chair is made from the same material and to an identical construction plan, each finished article still retains its individuality in the detail. The original of the Favela Chair was designed by Fernando and Humberto Campana in 1991 and it is produced as 1:1 model by Edra, Pisa/Italy, since 2003. The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of natural wood.

    Vitra - Slow Chair & Ottoman
    The Bouroullec brothers re-interpreted the armchair with their Slow Chair: A familiar, bulky form is combined with weightless, transparent materials when it comes to produce the Vitra armchair. This is how an exciting contrast emerges between form and material, searching for equals regarding comfort and style. Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec created this expansive armchair by using an extremely strong, precisely shaped knit which is stretched over the metal frame like a fitted stocking. This tensioning of the material offers a pleasantly soft and ergonomic comfort to the Slow Chair, which is even increased by thin seat and back cushions. The slightly transparent fabric thereby substitutes the thick cushions of traditional armchairs and brings weightlessness to the otherwise bulky Slow Chair. Slow Chair therewith acts really withdrawing in the living room or the winter garden, without renouncing any comfort: An ergonomic sitting comfort that adapts to the user’s body is offered by the strong tension at different points of the chair. Vitra manufactures the Slow Chair & Ottoman out of a steel-tube-frame with aluminium feet. Three cushions in adapted colours are included in the delivery package. More details: Design: Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, 2007. Material: Metal frame, polished or powder-coated aluminium legs, cover: Knitted fabric, seat and backrest cushion: Polyurethane foam and polyester wool. Measurements: 890 X 950 x 928 mm. Availability (tricot): Brown/crème, red/crème, brown, black. Availability (legs): Aubergine. Availability(glider): Glider, felt glider.

    Vitra - Coconut Chair
    The Coconut Chair is a typical 1950s design – it stands out for its humorous touch, formal clarity and minimal use of materials. Nelson himself compared it with a coconut cut into eight parts, and inverted the coconut’s colours: The plastic seat shell is white, while the single-section upholstery comes in a variety of colours. This return to the natural spatial shape of a shell enabled Nelson to create an inviting, comfortable armchair that offers users the freedom to sit in countless different positions. The Ottoman, which Nelson designed to complement the armchair in 1955, ensured even greater sitting comfort and increased the range of uses. Nelson got inspired by the abstract-surrealistic works of Joan Miró or Alexander Calder. Nelson compared the Coconut Chair with an eight-piece-sliced coconut, in which he turned the colour of the coconut: The outer seat bucket made of plastic is white, the one-piece pad is available in different colours. The original version was made of a bent steel sheet, whose foam rubber padding was offered with imitation leather, material, or leather covers. The frame was made out of steel tubes which were bent around the shell. Those gave the viewer's eye the expression, that the frame tightened a sweeping, suspended form, and fixed them on the floor. Vitra started to produce the Coconut Chair in 1988 again. More details: Design: George Nelson. Material: White shell made of fibreglass-reinforced plastic on a chromed tubular steel base frame. Measurements: 835 × 1040 × 830 Mm.

For the "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition held by the Museum of Modern Art, Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen created an entire series of versions of the Organic chair, each intended for a different sitting position.

Not until after 1950 was it possible to produce (and sell) larger numbers of organically molded seat shells, such as the Eames' famous Plastic Armchair or Saarinen's Tulip chair.

    Vitra - Miniature Big Easy Chair
    In 1988 and 1989, Arad’s London »One Off« work shop created an entire series of »Big Easy« armchairs using bent sheet steel welded at the edges. The »Big Easys« were brought out as individual items or small limited series; they all had a striking basic form and inflated arms reminiscent of comics – but they differed in terms of the welding and color. In the course of time, the initially oarse, roughly welded »Big Easys« went through changes, first becoming colorful lacquered chairs with smooth surfaces and then elegant versions made of polished stainless steel. Although Ron Arad’s furniture are variants on everyday things, they seem strange and irritate the eye – not only owing to the choice of material. Formally and functionally speaking, they undermine customary assumptions. You feel you have to first learn how to use them. A »Big Easy’s« voluminous steel body of the »Big Easy« resembles a traditional upholstered club armchair but can hardly be associated with a sense of comfortable interiors. Ron Arad considered it an art object that could likewise be functional, but was not intended to be particularly practical. The original of the Big Easy Chair was designed by Ron Arad in 1988 and it is produced as 1:1 model by Vitra AG, Basel/Switzerland, since 1998. The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of blackened stainless steel sheet metal.

    A number of spectacular designs ushered in the heyday of plastic furniture in the 1960s. In comparison to the designs of contemporaries, who turned to Pop Art for inspiration, the furniture and lighting objects created by Milanese architect Vico Magistretti are notable for their restrained formal idiom. Magistretti’s stackable one-piece plastic chair »Selene« was commissioned by Ernesto Gismondi, the owner of the company Artemide. Its most remarkable feature is the design of the legs: The S-shaped curves increase tensile strength while permitting an unusually slim and elegant silhouette. Polyurethame cast resin, scale: 1:6, 87 X 126 x 79 mm.

    Vitra - Miniature Coconut Chair
    In contrast to the trend of adapting sitting furniture to the requirements of the human body, George Nelson designs sitting objects from the formal repertoire of spontaneous, popular everyday culture. The shapes he used were strongly stimulated by the art of the 1950s. His symbolic statements promoted a new, very casual form of sitting. Nelson’s Coconut Chair was inspired by the coconut shell. The seat consists of a glass-fibre reinforced plastic shell with upholstery. The three-legged base of tubular steel is stabilized using fine crossbars. One has the impression that the frame spans the floating, swinging form taut and fixes it to the floor. The original of the Coconut Chair was designed by George Nelson in 1955 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Vitra AG, Basel/Switzerland since 1988. The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of polished aluminium, steel sheet, foam and leather.

    Vitra - Miniature Eames & Saarinen Organic Armchair
    The »Organic Armchair« was a submission for the Museum of Modern Art‘s 1940 design competition for »Organic Design in Home Furnishings«. Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen, who that year worked together for the first time, won first prize with their »Organic Armchair«. One of the conditions for competition entries was that the object was suitable for industrial production. In 1941, the Eames developed a method for threedimensional molding of manufacture the award-winning chair. The 3-D seat, made possible by means of incisions made in the veneer and cutting pieces out of it, was covered in foam rubber and upholstered in fabric. As a result of the war-time economy and the initially high production costs, despite the original competition brief the prototypes did not go into series production. The original of the Eames & Saarinen Organic Armchair was designed by Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen in 1940 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Vitra AG, Basel/Switzerland since 2004.

    Vitra - Miniature Well Tempered Chair
    Ron Arad is one of the liveliest and most productive figures in contemporary designs. He contrasts polished, stylish commercial design with highly poetic objects with an archaic feel to them. In the framework of the »Vitra Edition« he created the »Well Tempered Chair«. Its form is not the product of artificially shaping the sheet steel but is instead generated by screwing the tensile sheets into arches. Given its flexibility, the spring steel always bounces back into its original shape. The armchair is therefore not just a brilliant formal idea but also conveys a completely new feel for sitting. The original of the Well Tempered Chair was designed by Ron Arad in 1986 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Vitra AG, Basel/Switzerland, since 1986-1987. The here offered miniature by Vitra (scale 1:6) consists of spring-steel.

    Vitra - Jill Wood Chair
    The Jill chair is the first cooperation of Vitra and Alfredo Häberli. Inspired by the beginnings of plywood deformation, Jill sounds the borders of this technology out. Jill Wood moreover possesses a massive wood base. Charles Eames reached crossed the border between two and three dimensional deformation of plywood in the forties for the first time. The fascination for sculptural expression of this soon polywood-prototype is recognizable in many of Alfredo Häberlis designs. The in 1964 in Argentina born Swiss designer works with his studio which has been founded in 1991 for namely companies in product and furniture design, textiles shaping as well as interior architecture, Alfredo Häberli formally refers to the forties with Jill and transforms these into modern organic seats with Vitra and the newest plywood-technology. Jill’s veneers are bent in a patented procedure, until the seats get together. This creates an open and flexible seat with transition of seat to back which follows body contours. Two endless lines, an interior and an exterior, penetrate and surround an area forming a sculptural form which follows the contours of the body offering exceptional seat comfort thanks to high flexibility. The base of Jill has also been partly inspired by historic idols but always offering a contemporary expression to the chair – especially in its distinctive colour which is adapted to the optionally available seat-covers. More details: Seat: Veneer (ash, oak or walnut), three-dimensional deformed. Bases with glides for carpets or with felt glides for hard floor. Four-feet wood base out of natural massive oak, black ash or black pigmented walnut.

    Vitra - Miniature Eames DCW Chair
    In 1940, Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen developed a chair with a novel plywood seat moulded into a three-dimensional form for a competition sponsored by the New York Museum of Modern Art. However, it was not possible to produce the chair commercially, due to inadequate technical methods. It was seldom possible to press the plywood into a three-dimensional form without it breaking or splitting. During the following years, Charles and Ray Eames concentrated their efforts on developing a new method. The plywood chairs DCW (Dining Chair Wood) and LCW (Lounge Chair Wood) are the result of this long-term experimentation. In 1945, Charles and Ray Eames returned to the idea of a seating shell made out of moulded plywood; however the results were unsatisfying. They dispensed with the multifunctional shell and divided the seat and back into separate, freely articulated elements connected by a spine (frame). Each element has a clearly defined function, which it fulfils optimally with a minimum amount of material. »Shock mounts« – rubber disks bonded onto the wooden surface – connect the seat and back with the frame, which exists in wood or metal and in two different heights, either as a dining chair or lounge chair.

    The Tulip Chair is one of a series of chairs, stools, and tables developed by Eero Saarinen within a five-year period. The characteristic feature of the series is that the supporting structure has been pared to a central supporting stem »like a wineglass« in order to emphasise the uniformity of table and chair. Eero Saarinen describes the Tulip Chair: »The bases of tables and chairs in a typical furniture arrangement create an ugly, confusing, and restless world. I wanted to design a chair as an integrated whole once again. All important furniture of the past always had a holistic structure, from King Tut’s chair to that of Thomas Chippendale. Today, we are parting ways with this holism with our predilection for plastic and laminated wood shells. I am looking forward to the point when the plastics industry will be capable of manufacturing the chair using just one material, the way I have designed it.« The original of the Saarinen Tulip Chair was designed by Eero Saarinen in 1956 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Knoll Associates Inc., New York/USA since 1956.

    »La Chaise« was created as an entry for the »Low-Cost Furniture Design« competition held by the Museum of Modern Art in New York. »La Chaise« consists of two paper-thin fiberglass shells glued to each other but separated by hard rubber discs; the intervening space was filled with polystyrene foam. Charles and Ray Eames left the plastic shell un-treated. The base is made of five in part angled metal rods inserted into a cross-shaped wooden structure. The space left open between back and seat is not technically necessary, but instead purely a design element. The intention was to emphasize the chair’s light weight visually by perforating the otherwise large volume of the shell.

    Vitra - Miniature Eames Aluminium Chair
    The furniture making up the indoor-outdoor group goes back to an idea by Alexander Girard and Eero Saarinen, who were looking for furnishings to harmonize with the house they had just completed for Irvin Miller. Girard, one of whose interests as an architect was landscape gardening, complained that though there was a good choice of furniture for interiors, there was nothing to grace attractive patios – and no decent garden furniture. Charles Eames became preoccupied with this problem until one day during a flight he came up with the idea of an aluminium frame construction combined with a material »seat«. He wanted to develop a shape following the natural lines of the body, not however as a hard shell, but as a resilient length of material stretched between two supports which trace the body’s natural form. A narrow plastic strip extending the length of the material acts as reinforcement. The material is held in place by insertion into slits on the frame’s outer edge. Experiments with different covering materials later resulted in an upholstered sandwich construction consisting of two layers of »Nauga hide« with a thin filling of vinyl-foam and vinylwadding stitched at intervals of 1 7/8 inches using a high-frequency welding technique. Originally conceived for outside use, the first aluminium easy chairs to be mass produced, are today used solely in interiors.

    Vitra - Miniature B3 Wassily
    Marcel Breuer was one of the most important designers of the early modern age. His biography is closely linked to the history of the Bauhaus, founded by Walter Gropius in 1919. The club chair B3, known today as »Wassily« was also created in connection with this renowned institution. Lt is the first piece of seating furniture in the history of design to be made from seamless, precision-drawn tubular steel. Lts transparency and visible structure are expressions of the stringent aesthetic approach that prevailed in architecture and design following World War I. Marcel Breuer replaced the massive upholstered corpus of the traditional club chair with a skeleton-like construction made out of bent steel tubing, thereby overcoming the physical weightiness of conventional seating. He exploited the elasticity of the material, complementing it with tautly stretched fabric strips of reinforced canvas for the seat and back. The B3 did not acquire the name »Wassily« until the beginning of the sixties, when the Italian furniture producer Dino Gavina purchased the manufacturing rights: Marcel Breuer had designed the armchair for the house of the painter Wassily Kandinsky, who taught at the Bauhaus from 1922 until 1933. The original of the Wassily B3 was designed by Marcel Breuer in 1925 and it is produced as 1:1 model by The Knoll Group, New York/USA since 1968.

    Vitra - Miniature Eames LCM Chair
    Charles Eames and Eero Saarinen designed a chair in 1940 with a new type of three-dimensional pre-shaped plywood seat for a competition held by the New York Museum of Modern Art. The chair did not go into production owing to a lack of technical know-how. It was very rare back then for plywood to be successfully pressed into a three-dimensional shape. In the years that followed, Charles and Ray Eames concentrated on developing a process that enabled plywood to be shaped as they wanted. The »Plywood Chairs« DCW (Dining Chair Wood), LCW (Lounge Chair Wood) and the versions with metal legs, namely DCM (Dining Chair Metal) and LCM were the result of these years of experimentation. In 1945 Charles and Ray Eames again took up the idea of a seat made of formed plywood without, however, coming up with satisfactory solutions. As a consequence, they rejected the idea of a multifunctional seat and decided to treat seat and back as separate, freely articulated elements that were linked with each other via a backbone – the frame. Each component is therefore reduced to a clearly defined function which it fulfills with a minimum of materials being used. The rubber »shock mounts« glued onto the wood enable the seat and back to be connected to the frame. The original of the Eames LCM Chair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1945 and it is produced as 1:1 model by the Herman Miller Furniture Company, Zeeland/Michigan/USA as well as the Vitra International AG, Basel/Switzerland since 1957.
