The Charles and Ray Eames LCW Chair is a classic icon of modern furniture design. The Eames Molded Plywood Lounge Chair (1946) has been referred to as the "most famous chair of the century," with a form that relates directly to the human body and holds no secrets as to how it succeeds technically. Low-slung, with an expertly crafted molded plywood seat and back, this chair cradles the user and features hardwood inner ply for durability. The molded plywood legs provide superior strength and rubber shock mounts buffer against jarring movement. Self-leveling pod glides level on uneven surfaces.This Eames LCW chair will be sold at the upcoming auction of wright20 in Chicago.
