Armchair by Le Corbusier: a Model for Every Shape

The various models of armchair by le corbusier were one of the most famous part of the work by the Swiss (but French naturalized) designer and architect Le Corbusier: this models of armchair (normally know as LC2) belong to a series of seats (between them there are also some couches) that the designer realized in 1928 with the collaboration of Pierre Jeannerat and Charlotte Perriand.

These models of armchair were presented to the public in 1929 at the Salon D’Automne in Paris. And this series of models of armchair represented the realization in the field of furniture design and particularly of seats for the canons of Modernism: and this for their elegance and style but also for their functionality, because they offer at the users a comfortable seat.

One of the most influential architects of the 20th century Le Corbusier is arguably best-known today for his design work. Born in 1887 in the Swiss canton of Neuchâtel as Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, he initially completed an apprenticeship as engraver before increasingly turning to painting and architecture. Already showing his extremely varied interests he lived out his entire career as an architect and architectural theorist, city planner, draughtsman, painter and furniture designer.

Always slightly ahead of his time Le Corbusier's designs were never ignored but the subject of regular debate and discussion: as was their designer. One of the most prominent personalities of his time Le Corbusier was recognized not only for the style of his work, but also, and above all, for its unusual appearance and its strong character: no one analysed the approaching future as clearly and confidently as Le Corbusier.

A fact that can be beautifully observed in objects such as the  LC 2 armchair. Although Le Corbusier did not work alone on its design, he is often cited as its solo creator: the chair however is the result of a collaboration between Le Corbusier his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and the young designer Charlotte Perriand as indeed are all other works realised by the trio until 1937 and featured today in theLC collection.

And also the various models of armchair by le Corbusier have a particular characteristic, that descends from the depth studies on the aspect and form of human body made by le Corbusier: indeed all the models of seat are distingue in “Petite Modele”, studied and made for the male body and with a smaller seat, and “Gran Modele”, studied and made for the female body and then with a larger and more comfortable seat.

Another important characteristic of the various models of armchair by le Corbusier is in the choose materials: indeed the Swiss designer was an experimenter in the using of new materials and selected for his models of chair the tubular steel. This is  a material solid and light at the same time. For the coating he selected the  classical and soft leather, for an endless elegance.

If you choose one of the various models of armchair by le Corbusier for your home or office, you will buy not only a comfortable seat but also a piece of history furniture.
