LCW

The LCW (lounge chair wood) was introduced in 1946. It is made of bend plywood and the initial idea of designer Charles Eames was to have seat and back rest as one continuous shape. Instead the design developed with a lumbar support between seat and back rest. Over the years it has been made in many types of wood and upholstery. The chair is still in production today, by Herman Miller in the United States and by Vitra in Europe. I came across this stained red one in the La Tourette Monastery in France.

De LCW (lounge chair wood) werd geïntroduceerd in 1946. Het is gemaakt van gebogen multiplex en het originele idee van ontwerper Charles Eames was om de zitting en rugleuning uit één geheel te maken. In plaats daarvan ontwikkelde het ontwerp zich met een lumbale steun tussen zitting en rugleuning. In de loop van de jaren is de stoel in veel verschillende soorten hout en stoffering uitgevoerd. De stoel wordt nog steeds geproduceerd door Herman Miller in de Verenigde Staten en door Vitra in Europa. Ik kwam dit rood gebeitste exemplaar tegen in het klooster van La Tourette.
