le corbusier lc4 chaise longue

le corbusier lc4 chaise longue

Design Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand, 1928.
Sling seat, Chrome steel frame, black enamel steel base
Made in Italy by Cassina.

The "Cassina I 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.

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.

Designed in 1928 this chair became famous in 1965 with Cassina, the LC4 is the definitive chaise longue: built in a shape designed for relaxation, the chair was created when the three designers teamed together to put man at the center of their design, taking the idea that form and function should be at the service of relaxation, creating a perfect balance between its geometric purity and its ergonomic intent. The stability of the frame - for any angle of inclination - is guaranteed by the friction through rubber tubes that cover the cross bar of the base.

This recognizable chaise lounge, described as the resting machine, was presented to the 'Salon d'Automne' in 1929 and is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. LC4 chairs upholstered with hairy hide, the headroll is always in black leather. In the versions upholstered in leather, the headrest may be in black leather (online) or in the same color of the upholstery (please call to specify).

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.
