Charles and Ray Eames, American industrial designers, designed the LCM Chair in 1946. Charles and Ray were interested in exploring the possibilities of manipulating plywood. They wanted to create a chair that was beautiful, functional, and affordable. They invented a technique that allowed them to bend plywood in two different directions. The chair of the seat contains a horizontal curve in the back and a downward curve in the front. This shape creates a comfortable and ergonomic design only using bentwood.
