Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948 for a competition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, inspired by "Floating Figure", a sculpture by Gaston Lachaise. It is the unbelievable elegance of this assertive seating sculpture that enables any number of sitting and reclining positions, which is so very appealing. It has long since established itself as an icon of Organic Design.
Vitra's products and concepts are developed in Switzerland by applying a diligent design process that brings together the company's engineering excellence with the creative genius of leading international designers.
