La Chaise

  • - -
  • Description

    The La Chaise was a prototype entered in a 1948 design competition sponsored by the Museum of Modern Art and the Museum Design Project, Inc. A stunning homage to the sculptor Gaston La Chaise because the chaise embodied the same flowing organicism of his sculptures. Forty-two years passed before the lounge chair was actually produced by Vitra in 1990. It consists of two very thin molded fiberglass shells cemented together on a base of chrome-finished steel rods and natural oak.

    Shell: polyurethane, white lacquer finish.

    Base: chrome-plated tubular steel.

    Cruciform base: solid natural oak, protective natural lacquer finish.

    Origin of wood: oak (Quercus robur) from Western Europe and/or Poland.
