The culmination of Charles and Ray Eames’s experimentation in molded plywood, was the so-called Eames Lounge Chair of 1956. which represents the epitome of both American Modernism of the postwar era and the traditional American taste. It was called the 670 Lounge and it is composed of 3 curved plywood shells which are covered in soft Italian leather (removable) cushions. Originaly, these were filled with down and duck feathers, but in the 70s, foam was used instead. Now, foam and fiberfill are being used. Initially the plywood shells were made in Brazilian rosewood ply veneer, but since it has a throughout the world embargo, the Lounge is now more typical to find Walnut or Palisander plywood veneer even though other options are accessible. The 5 star aluminum cast foundation of the chair enable the lounge chair to swivel for optimum convenience.
