The LSR was designed in 1950 by Charles and Ray Eames as part of their plastic family: a collection of multi-function chairs that revolutionised furniture design and which remain as relevant today as then. Remaining faithful to the Eames design the re-issue of the LSR Plastic Chair by Vitra features an organically shaped plastic shell in combination with its filigree metal base.
