The voluptuous organic form of the Eames La Chaise was an evolution of plywood chairs developed a year earlier in collaboration with architect Eero Saarinen for the "Organic Design in Home Furnishings" competition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. A startling innovation in chair design, its expressive outline was made possible by technological advances in molding fiberglass to create free-form shells for flexible seating. It is a dramatic piece for office reception areas, galleries and museums, and stylish residences. Manufactured by Vitra, one of the preeminent names in European furniture.
