Vitra LCW lounge chair black ash.
A design by Charles & Ray Eames.
With these chairs, the body shapes have been taken into account so that you can sit very comfortably. The organic shape and natural appearance of the wood also invite you to sit for a long time.
The LCW (lounge chair wood) Armchair which is part of the Plywood Group by Charles & Ray Eames, is made of thin molded sheets of ash wood. The previously stiff material becomes a soft support for the body and back through this special manufacturing process, which is why this chair from Vitra adapts beautifully to your needs and is particularly comfortable.
The individual elements of the LCW leather chair are attached to the frame with elastic rubber discs, which further improves the seating comfort. The highlight of this chair is the leather upholstery, making this version of the LCW a guaranteed eye-catcher in your living room.
The height of the LCW lounge chair from Vitra is 68 cm.
The dimensions are: b. 56 x h. 65 x d. 61 cm, with a seat height of 30 cm.
