In the 1940s Charles and Ray Eames concerned themselves with developing a method for the three-dimensional deformation of plywood into ergonomic forms. Countless experiments eventually led the pair to the development of the chairs of the Plywood Group, in which the Eames' combined the successfully realised ergonomically shaped plywood seats and backrests with a range of bases and covers. In the case of the LCM and LCM Leather the seat and backrest are connected via a filigree steel tube frame, while the LCM Leather additionally features a thin padding of leather upholstery - a noble detail that provides additional comfort. Unlike the other models in the Plywood Group - a collection which forms a central feature of the Vitra portfolio and as objects remain as contemporary as ever - the LCM is characterised by its extreme lightness and the unique contrast of the shiny metal and moulded wood.
