Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948. It never came to production and all existing chairs are either prototypes or reproductions. This particular piece is a high quality reproduction most likely from the 1980’s.
Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948 for a competition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, inspired by “Floating Figure”, a sculpture by Gaston Lachaise. It is the unbelievable elegance and grace of this assertive sculptural chaise lounge that enables any number of sitting and reclining positions, which is so very appealing. It has long since established itself as an icon of organic design.
