The story behind the Eames LCM Chair
The LCM (or 'Lounge Chair Metal') was one of a number of seminal designs that Charles and Ray Eames released during their most productive and successful period, as they took post-war America by storm with their sleek, functional innovations. It was one of their first forays into combining materials to create new, interesting silhouettes and shapes, with the seat and backrest almost floating around a crisp, clean steel frame. The lightness of touch and ease that it blended into almost any setting made it and instant and enduring favourite among the public.
ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Charles, 1907-1978 (United States) - Ray, 1912-1988 (United States)
Charles Eames was an American designer and innovator who pioneered new techniques, such as the fibreglass and plastic resin moulding and wire mesh frames. He usually worked alongside his wife, Ray, though he is often credited alone. In the 1940s, the designers began focusing on the new plastics and were excited by the properties the material held. They were able to mould the plastics into organic shapes that followed the shape of the body. This discovery led to a whole new look in furniture that perfectly captured the spirit of the times. The couple's most iconic designs include the DAR chair, the DSR Dining Chair, the RAR Rocker, the DSW Dining Chair, the EA 108 Office Chair and the Wire Base Table. Many of these were first presented at the New York Museum of Modern Art's Low-Cost Furniture Design Competition in the late 1940s.
