LC3 Grand Modele Armchair with Down Cushions
Designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, produced by Cassina
The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections (1928) as "cushion baskets," which they designed as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. These pieces reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames that are externalized. With thick, resilient pillows resting within the steel frames, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style. The color-saturated frames and fabrics were chosen from the color palettes or "color keyboards" that Le Corbusier developed in the 1930s and 1950s. Each color was chosen for its spatial and physiological effects, and Corbu's palettes allow each hue to match the others -go ahead and pair any fabric with any frame. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina's Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy.
  • The differences among the collections are that the LC2 is more compactly scaled, and the LC3 has the option of either down- or Dacron-wrapped cushions.
