Born in St. Louis, Missouri, Charles Eames grew up in America's industrial heartland. As a young man he worked for engineers and manufacturers, anticipating his lifelong interest in mechanics and the complex working of things. Ray Kaiser, born in Sacramento, California, demonstrated her fascination with the abstract qualities of ordinary objects early on. She spent her formative years in the orbit of New York's modern art movements and participated in the first wave of American-born abstract artists.

The couple married in 1941 and moved from Michigan, where they had met at the Cranbrook Academy of Art, to Los Angeles and established an office together. With a grand sense of adventure, Charles and Ray turned their curiosity and boundless enthusiasm into creations that established them as a truly great husband-and-wife design team. Their unique synergy led to a whole new look in furniture. Modern and minimal. Playful and functional. Sleek, sophisticated, and beautifully simple. That was and is the "Eames look."

Exclusive LCW Chair in Ash and Walnut

LCW Chair

An instantly recognisable piece designed by Charles and Ray Eames in the 1940s and manufactured by Vitra, the LCW Chair is exclusively available in black ash and pigmented walnut in celebration of the chair's 75th anniversary.

A remarkable union of black ash and pigmented walnut brings out the chair's gracefully curved seat and elegant wooden legs, elevated on a plywood frame. A result of Charles and Ray Eames' experiments moulding plywood into complex shapes, the exemplary lounge chair reflects the celebrated duo's innovative approach to design.
