Le Corbusier Lc2 Armchair

le corbusier lc2 armchair

le corbusier lc2 armchair

Design Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand, 1928
Upholstered cushions padded with dacron, metal frame
Made in Italy by Cassina

The "Cassina | Maestri" (Cassina Masters) collection includes some of the most important furniture created by leading figures in the Modern Movement, pieces which have since become landmarks in the evolution of contemporary design.

The amassment fosters the emergence of the absolute values of design, which transcend space and time, the content of which has never been explored, thus constituting a fundamental contribution to current design research. These pieces fit into contemporary furnishing schemes with the utmost naturalness, blending in as effortlessly as furniture designed this year.

LC2 is a timeless collection, which has made design history. Designed in 1928 and exhibited at the Salon d'Automne in Paris in 1929, it is the archetypal armchair in the new and modern conception of furnishings understood as "domestic equipment", re-issued by Cassina and produced exclusively since 1965. The separation of the metal frame and the cushions expresses a rationalist approach to industrial production.

Early in his career, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, also known as Le Corbusier, was met with some resistance to his work. Owing to its alleged "revolutionary" nature and the radical look it acquired from its "purist" form. In time, however, it won the recognition it deserved and is still widely admired.

All the models in the Cassina Masters collection, by merit of their artistic content and particular creative character, are protected by copyright. The exclusive reproduction rights have been acquired by Cassina.

The LC2, petit confort collection consists of an armchair, two-seat and three-seat sofa and is included in the design collection of the Museum of Modern Art. The collection features a polished chrome or painted steel frame in the LC color palette. The cushions can be specified with either dacron or feather padding and upholstered in fabric or leather with matching piping.

Corbusier

Le Corbusier, whose birth name was Charles-Édouard Jeanneret (1887-1965), was not only a pioneer of modern architecture, but also an architect, designer, urbanist, and writer. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades and his constructed buildings spanned Europe, India and America. He was an early proponent of modern high rise design and had a personal dedication to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities.
The Cassina company was created by the brothers Cesare and Umberto Cassina in 1927 in Meda, Brianza, (Northern Italy). In 1964, the Cassina Masters Collection was born, with the acquisition of product rights of Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, and Charlotte Perriand. Today, Cassina is the exclusive worldwide licensee of the Le Corbusier designs. The "Cassina I Maestri" collection was widened in 1968 with the acquisition of reproduction rights to some of the Bauhaus objects, and in 1971, the designs of Gerrit Rietveld, Frank Lloyd Wright, and of Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1972. The collection continued still, with the re-issue in 1983 of furniture by Erik Gunner Asplund, rights to reproduce furniture by Frank Lloyd Wright, including the Barrel chair, and, finally, in 2004, furniture by Charlotte Perriand.
