Vitra Miniatures Collection: LC1 Chair
Designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, produced by Vitra Design Museum
Each handmade Vitra miniature is a classic in the history of furniture design reduced in size at a scale of 1:6. True to the original pieces in structure and materials, the miniatures are precision-crafted, making them a thoughtful gift for a furniture lover or design professional. Le Corbusier regarded traditional furnishings, with their structures hidden beneath wads of padding and upholstery, as relics of the past. Partnering with Charlotte Perriand and his cousin Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier stripped away all excess to create the sleek, elemental LC1 Chair (1928). One of the signature classics of modern design, the back of the chair is attached to the frame by a rod that allows the angle of tilt to change with the user. In 1928, under the watchful eyes of the designers the first versions were manufactured for use in Villa Church and Villa La Roche. The fauteuil à dossier basculant first went on public show at the Paris Autumn Salon in 1929. Each Vitra miniature comes handsomely packaged in a wood box with an informational booklet.
