What does LCM Calf's skin mean?
LCM means Lounge Chair Wood, Calf's skin is the material.
The LCM Calf’s Skin was designed by Ray and Charles Eames and is manufactured today by Vitra. During the course of the 1940s Charles & Ray Eames researched processes for moulding plywood to ergonomically adapt it to the shapes of people: countless experiments which eventually led to the chairs of the Plywood Group, in which the Eames combined the ergonomic seat and backrest made of moulded plywood with various bases and covers. And even seventy years later the Plywood Chairs remain an endearing and ever popular favourite in the Vitra portfolio. In the special case of the LCM Calf’s Skin the seat and backrest are set atop a filigree tubular steel frame and in addition are covered with a thin fur layer - an extravagant detail that provides additional comfort. The Vitra lounge chair thus offers a formal lightness and elegance that make it applicable for any contemporary setting. Alternatively the Vitra LCM is available in a wide range of materials and finishes.
