Le Corbusier Furniture

Le Corbusier's Furniture is a classic furniture line with modern innovation that was created by Le Corbusier. This style is a modernist response to the traditional club chairs.

Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris

Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris (better known as Le Corbusier) was a French/Swiss designer, architect, painter, writer and one of the initiator of what is now called modern architecture. His main ideas were about standards and perfection. The modernist ideas found in his architecture were expressed in his designs for simple, streamlined furniture as well.

 

 
The Le Corbusier furniture line was introduced in 1928 in Paris by Le Corbusier and his team of designers. He began experimenting with design after collaborating with the architect, Charlotte Perriand. The results of this collaboration were three chrome-plated tubular steel chairs designed for two of his projects.

These chairs included the famous LC-1, LC-2, LC-3 and LC-4 models.
LC-1 was originally titled "Basculant",
LC-2 - "great comfort sofa, small model" ("Fauteuil grand confort, petit modèle"),
LC-3 - "great comfort sofa, large model" ("Fauteuil grand confort, grand modèle"),
LC-4 - "long chair" ("Chaise longue")
