Lounge Chair White Version is a leather armchair with armrests and 5-star base.‎
Ever since it was first launched, the Lounge Chair has been manufactured in different variations.‎ Although there was a recurrent demand for a version with white upholstery, white models were only produced infrequently as special editions.‎
The new interpretation of this classic armchair in a light, graceful version was developed by Vitra in collaboration with the Eames Office and Dutch designer Hella Jongerius.‎ All of the chair‘s components are coordinated, from the zipper fasteners to the backrest spacers to the glides on the base.‎ The off-white leather cushions fit snugly into shells of walnut veneer with a light-coloured stain; the aluminium base and back braces have a polished finish.‎

Materials:
- Seat and back: moulded plywood, different face veneers.‎ Classic version in American cherry (USA), santos palisander (Brazil; certified sustainability) or black-pigmented walnut (USA).‎ White version: white-pigmented walnut (USA).‎ Black version: ash with a black lacquer fi nish (Germany).‎
- Upholstery/Cover: removable cushion units, covers in leather.‎
- Seat height: 380 mm (250 mm with applied load, measured in accordance with EN 1335-1).‎
Armrests: upholstered in leather, attached to the seat and back shells with shock mounts (bonded rubber and metal connectors).‎
- Base: fi ve-star swivel base or four-star nonswivel base (Ottoman).‎ Both base and back braces in die-cast aluminium.‎
- Glides: all bases fitted with hard glides for carpet; felt glides optionally available for hard floors.‎

‚Why don‘t we make an updated version of the old English club chair?‘ With this comment, Charles Eames initiated the development of the Lounge Chair, a process that took several years.‎The aim was to satisfy the desire for an amply proportioned chair that combined ultimate comfort with the highest quality materials and craftsmanship.‎ When it came out in 1956, the design of this armchair by Charles and Ray Eames set new standards: it is not only lighter, more elegant and more modern than the conventionally ponderous club chair – it is also more comfortable.‎ Thanks to these qualities, the Lounge Chair became one of the most famous designs of Charles and Ray Eames and has attained the status of a classic in the history of modern furniture.‎
