In 1929 at the Salon d‘Autumne in Paris, Le Corbusier and his team of designers presented a revolutionary collection of furniture that stunned the city. Among the pieces was the ethereal yet bold LC6 Table (1928), a mathematically refined structure of steel and glass that has become one of the most important International Style tables of the 20th century. Made of aeronautical steel, the base is welded for a seamless finish with sculpted angles and smooth, mitered corners. 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 table base is height adjustable for a total table height ranging from 27" to 29".
The tabletop is a .6" thick rectangle of Italian glass, making the LC6 equally right as a dining table or in the conference room.
Together the elements create a sense of line, scale and proportion unsurpassed by other designs.
Widely considered one of the most influential architects of the 20th century, Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret) is credited with changing the face of urban architecture, bringing it into the technological age. Connecting architecture with revolution, his legacy demonstrates a strong, if utopian, sense of purpose to meet the needs of a democratic society dominated by the machine. “Modern life demands, and is waiting for, a new kind of plan, both for the house and the city,” he said in 1923.

Also designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand
Through luck, fate or simply the power of her own genius, Charlotte Perriand designed a roof-top bar for the Salon d'Automne which drew the attention of Le Corbusier. Upon seeing the anodized aluminum and chromed steel furniture that Perriand had designed for the bar, the famed Corbusier invited Perriand to join the Le Corbusier studio. Read more >
Pierre Jeanneret Switzerland (1896-1967)
It is the fate of history that architect and furniture designer Pierre Jeanneret will forever be best known for his collaborations with his famous and esteemed cousin, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret (aka, Le Corbusier). 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 >
