Armchair LC1 by Le Corbusier: Tecnical Chair

The armchair LC1 by Le Corbusier is a part of the series of seats (this series includes also  the chaise lounge and 2 and 3 seats couch) that the famous Swiss designer and architect projected  and realized, with a help from his colleagues, between 1928 and 1929 and showed to public at the Salomn d’Autumne in Paris. After an important production in the field of architecture and city planning, this production of these seats was one of the most important success for Le Corbusier.

Particularly the armchair LC1 by Le Corbusier is an armchair with absolutely unique and particular lines and technical characteristics (these characteristics are a trademark of Le Corbusier art in the furniture and design field) that made this armchair an unique piece also decades by its production.
 
Le Corbusier (1887 – 1965), born Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, is seen as one of the most influential architects of modern age. The Swiss-French designer, architect, painter, urban planner and writer was and continues to be recognized as a design leader on a worldwide scale. 

Beginning with a commission to build a home at 18 years old, Le Corbusier enjoyed a decades-long career in multiple industries. In architecture, he became known for his adherence to the golden rule and his Five Points of Architecture, while his accomplishments in urban planning are truly admirable. His furniture was also popularized, inspiring hundreds of other modern pieces. His most well-known pieces are his LC-1, LC-2 and LC-3 chairs. 

Famously stating that “chairs are architecture” and that “sofas are bourgeois,” Le Corbusier upheld his design principles regardless of the genre he was working in. Lauded during his lifetime and after, even United States President Lyndon B. Johnson noted that “his influence was universal and his works are invested with a permanent quality possessed by those of very few artists in our history.”

For its particularly style the armchair Lc1 by Le Corbusier is called the colonial chair: this for the squared form (Le Corbusier obtained this particular line using the steel tubular that is the only material for the framework of the chair) that recalls the colonial or safari style. A sober and dry line, that at the same time maintains an high level of elegance thanks to the chooses materials for backrest, armrest and seat: this material is leather, comfortable and strong at the same time.

But the technical solution of the armchair LC1 by Le Corbusier are the most important elements of this design work: indeed Le Corbusier, in the projecting of his seats, studied for a long time the human anatomy to understand what could be the best solution for comfort (and for the functionality of the object, one of the most important canon of Modernism, an artistic movement of what Le Corbusier was one of the most famous exponent).

And if you choose the armchair LC1 by Le Corbusier for your home or office, you will find not only an armchair with a rather unique style, but also a seat large and comfortable.
