This armchair was designed by Charles and Ray Eames in 1956 and is an icon of modernism design. Eames designed it to not only be lighter, more elegant and more modern than the conventional club chair, but more comfortable. The chair features a frame comprised of three curved plywood shells covered with veneer. The shells and the seat cushions are essentially of the same shape, and composed of two curved forms interlocking to form a solid mass with leather upholstery. Thanks to these qualities, the Lounge Chair became one of the most famous designs by Charles and Ray Eames and has attained the status of a classic in the history of modern furniture.
