Designed in 1928, the LC4 Chaise Longue (or "long chair" in English) was dubbed the "relaxing machine" because of the way it mirrors the body's natural curves while appearing to float above its supports. An infinite number of sitting angles are achievable with the LC4, as the moveable frame adjusts along the base, from upright to full recline. The LC4 is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. 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 upholstery choices include cowhide with black leather headrest; all black leather; or natural canvas with a black, amber or chocolate headrest and footer.
Chromed tubular steel frame; black lacquered steel base; polyurethane foam pad and headrest; full-grain, semi-aniline-dyed leather, natural cowhide or canvas upholstery.

The two began their partnership in 1922 with the Villa Besnus outside Paris. This famous familial duo went on to create some of the most esteemed icons of mid-century modernism, including the Villa Savoye in Poissy, France, and the Grand Modele seating collection. Read more >
