The inspiration for the Vitra La Chaise by Charles and Ray Eames was the sculpture "Floating Figure" by Gaston Lachaise. The designer couple originally designed their extravagant armchair for a contest of the Museum of Modern Art New York, and it resulted in one of the more interesting design classics. The gracefully sculpted Vitra Eames lounge chair is one of the icons of furniture design and attracts the attention of all design enthusiasts.

Design Story

The La Chaise from Charles and Ray Eames was created in context of a competition organised by the Museum of Modern Art in New York and is now one of the absolute Eames design classics. The inspitaration for the chair came from the sculpture "Floating Figure" by Gaston Lachaise: and in addition to its striking form the interplay of shapes and materials bequeaths the Eames La Chaise through the Swiss furniture manufacturer Vitra its characteristic appearance. The inner frame of steel tube is supported by a base made of solid oak and carries the curved seat shell made of polyurethane, and which thus creates a dynamic effect due to its flowing form. The designer duo Charles and Ray Eames are one of the most important design studios of the 20th century and were responsible for numerous designs that were both commercially and critically successful. Designs such as the La Chaise.

La Chaise by Charles and Ray Eames is one of the absolute design classics
