The Lounge Chair and ottoman are furnishings made of molded plywood and leather, designed for the furniture company. They are officially titled Lounge and Ottoman and were released in 1956 after years of development by designers. It was the first chair that the designed for a high-end market. Examples of these furnishings are part of the permanent collection of New York's Museum of Modern Art.
Aimed to develop furniture that could be mass-produced and affordable, with the exception of the Lounge Chair. This luxury item was inspired by the traditional English Club Chair. The Lounge Chair has become iconic with Modern style design, although when it was first made, remarked in a letter to Charles that the chair looked "comfortable and un-designy". Charles's vision was for a chair with "the warm, receptive look of a well-used first baseman's mitt." The chair is composed of three curved plywood shells: the headrest, the backrest and the seat. In modern production, the shells are made up of five thin layers of plywood which are covered by a Brazilian rosewood veneer. The layers are glued together and shaped under heat and pressure. Earlier models are differentiated from newer models by the sets of rubber spacers between the aluminum spines and the wood panels first used in the earliest production models (and then hard plastic washers used in later versions) early first series versions of the chair used three screws to secure the armrests, second series models used two. In the earlier models, the zipper around the cushions may have been brown or black as well, and in newer models the zippers are black. The shells and the seat cushions are essentially the same shape, and composed of two curved forms interlocking to form a solid mass. The chair back and headrest are identical in proportion, as are the seat and the ottoman. Early ottomans had removable rubber slide on feet with metal glides.
Since its introduction, the chair has been in continuous production in America. Later, Vitra began producing the chair for the European market. It was licenced for a short period to Hille in the mid 1960s, but the licence was withdrawn due to quality issues also some slight changes to the original design - notably the cast base which was altered to be thinner. Immediately following its release, other furniture companies began to copy the chair's design. Some made direct copies, others were merely 'influenced' by the design. Most notably the former Plycraft Company issued dozens of chairs that were direct copies of or in-the-style-of the 670. Later Chinese and European companies began making direct copies. However, Vitra remain the only two companies to produce these chairs with the name attached.
