Eames Office x Globe: La Chaise Skateboard Deck Set


SKU: 96012 In Stock

a new skateboard set that pays tribute to the stylish La Chaise.

Introducing the fourth addition to the Eames Office x Globe collaboration: The La Chaise Skateboard Deck Set!

Charles and Ray Eames designed La Chaise in 1948 for a furniture design competition at The Museum of Modern Art in New York. The design was a formal, technical, and typological innovation — it combined a then high-tech material with a free form to create a chair and daybed hybrid. Supposedly, the hole at the back was designed so one could read a story to a child and pet the family dog at the same time! The name was chosen as an homage to Gaston Lachaise’s voluptuous and stylized 1927, “Floating Figure” sculpture, which the Eameses thought would be a perfect match for their seat shell design.

La Chaise was never manufactured during Charles and Ray’s lifetime, but the design established itself as an icon of mid-century organic design before finally being put into production by Vitra in 1991.

Maple veneer, printed design on both sides of deck.
Each five piece set comes with custom-designed “Eames” wall-mounts and a certificate of authenticity. The boards measure 32h x 8.25w x 0.5″d

More About Globe

Charles & Ray Eames are among the most influential American designers of the 20th century, best known for their innovative contributions to architecture, furniture design, industrial design, photographic arts, and perhaps most importantly, pioneers of the press Globe uses today to make skateboards. Sharing in a similar appreciation for craftsmanship, details, and “taking your pleasure seriously”, the Eames Office is proud to present an on-going collaboration with Globe.

The Globe ReGrowth Program offsets their timber use by partnering with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program. Globe’s yearly donations to the NFF help plant more than three times the amount of trees they harvest annually in making their skateboards.
