After several years of experiments with moulded plywood Charles and Ray Eames developed in 1945/46 the so-called Plywood Group, a collection of chairs produced by Vitra and which also includes the LCW and the LCW Calf Hide. Crafted from laminated wood the otherwise reduced Vitra Lounge Chair is given an extra touch of elegance through the fur covers.
Charles & Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with new processes for optimizing the way three-dimensionally moulded plywood fits the contours of the body. The result was the Plywood Group.

The exhibition at Volume Gallery Berlin presents, in addition to videos and photos from the Cosmetic Surgery Kingdom project, the evolution of Bora Hong's considerations on beauty in design from her reassembled LCWs over original Eames LCWs "customised" by Bora Hong with a chisel - "I considered the LCW itself might be getting bored with its appearance" - and onto the latest phase of the project in which the LCWs are recreated from epoxy resin in which are trapped fragments of old, normal, chairs: these recent works reflecting current trends in cosmetic surgery where beyond the simple alterations of yore, bones are increasingly being cut, removed and reconfigured, fundamental structural changes being undertaken and appearances being made to order, designed to order if you will...

(smow)abseits: Vitra photographs by Bart van Bussel

From experience we can confirm that photographing furniture is not the easiest job in the world. And getting a picture that captures the spirit and functionality of the object is a true art. And so we were all the more impressed when we stumbled across a...
