Charles and Ray Eames spent many years experimenting with new processes for optimizing the way three-dimensionally moulded plywood fits the contours of the body. Today, Vitra LCW, with its moulded plywood seat, backrest and base, is once again available with a hide cover, as was the case when it was launched in 1946. Vitra Eames LCW is made of moulded wooden laminate with an ash veneer. The seat and backrests are connected via shock mounts to the base frame.
