With their chair designs, Charles and Ray Eames frequently created variations by combining one seat shell with different base frames. Thus, the Plywood Group was from the very beginning also available with a chromed tubular steel base frame, which lent the chair a lighter look and by contrasting materials made the appearance all the more exciting. Alongside models with no upholstery, the Eameses also designed versions with cowhide or leather upholstery. The covers rest on a thin wedge of foam to provide additional comfort. As part of the Vitra Home Collection, the LCMs with hide or leather covers are now available once more for the first time in decades.
