LAX Lounge Chair by Charles & Ray Eames for Zenith Plastics, 1950s
This LAX armchair by Charles and Ray Eames is in an ocher colour on an original lounge height X-base. This second generation armchair was manufactured by Zenith Plastic Co. between 1953 and 1957. It is recognisable by the bigger rubber shock mounts, but without the rope edge. The chair is very fibrous, typical for these early shells. The last photograph shows the difference between a dining height base and a lounge height base.
