Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948 for a Museum of Modern Art competition. But it is only since 1991 that Vitra has been manufacturing small quantities of the design in serial production. La Chaise is suitable for both sitting and lying on. Its organic shape was inspired by “Floating Figure”, a sculpture by Gaston Lachaise. Great 1990s vintage example, marked with Vitra label.
