La Chaise

Charles & Ray Eames, 1948

Inspired by the 'Floating Figure' sculpture by Gaston Lachaise, Charles and Ray Eames designed the elegant lounge chair La Chaise for a competition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1948. La Chaise has long since become an icon of organic design and its sculptural shape creates a striking highlight, even in the most prestigious lobbies and lounges.
