Solid Construction

Sturdy Legs
The sturdy metal legs—in trivalent chrome or black—have self-leveling nylon glides that work on both carpet and hard-surface floors.

Design Story
In the early 1940s, when Charles Eames was working on MGM set designs, he would return to the small apartment where he and his wife, Ray, were experimenting with wood-molding techniques that would have profound effects on the design world.

After World War II, they adapted the technology to create inexpensive, high-quality chairs that could be mass-produced. Their relationship with Herman Miller started with molded plywood chairs in the late 1940s and includes this world-renowned Eames lounge chair, now in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The Eames Molded Plywood LCM Chair features a striking scuplted form created by molding thin sheets of lightweight veneer into gently curved shapes that give the hard material a soft, inviting appearance. The natural contours of the seat and back are designed to comfortably fit the body.
Herman Miller:
Working with design legends George Nelson and Charles and Ray Eames, Herman Miller pioneered modern furniture design in the mid-20th century. As the business grew, it added a research focus to its problem-solving design. Today, the spirit of innovation and collaboration continues to drive the global company forward. In addition to the enduring designs that form its foundation, Herman Miller also offers solutions from partners and top designers who share its values.
