Created by Charles and Ray Eames as an entry for the "Low Cost Furniture Design" competition held by the New York Museum of Modern Art in 1948, the La Chaise consists of two paper thin fiberglass shells glued to each other, but separated with rubber discs and filled with polystyrene foam.

While the open space between the back and the seat is not technically necessary, the Eames' wanted a design element that would emphasize the chair's light weight visually.
