Chair by Le Corbusier: Style and Logic for Comfort

Le Corbusier was one of the most important and prolific designer of the last century: his work covers all architectural fields, from city planning to furniture design, and between his creations we can’t forget the chair by le Corbusier. When the Swiss designer project and made out this chair he remained faithful to his principles, in the first at the rule that the appearance of an object should be concrete expression of the function of the object. In effect the chair by le Corbusier shows a simple and linear framework, made with a tubular steel and cushions full of expanded material with variable density.

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.

Early in his career his work met with some resistance owing to its alleged «revolutionary» nature and the radical look it acquired from its «purist» experiments; in time , however, it won the recognition it deserved and it is still widely admired. His message is still being assimilated by an ever increasing number of people in the profession, but his far-out avant-garde attitudes should be interpreted with due consideration for the use of rational systems in his planning method, evidenced by extremely simple modules and formes based on the functional logic.

Le Corbusier combined a passion for classical Greek architecture and an attraction to the modern machine. He published his ideas in a book entitled, Vers une Architecture, in which he refers to the house as a “machine for living,” an industrial product that should include functional furniture or “equipment de l’habitation.” In this spirit, Le Corbusier co-designed a system of furniture with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.

The tubular steel furniture – including the famous LC4 Chaise Longue and LC2 and LC3 seating collections – projected a new rationalist aesthetic that came to epitomize the International Style.

And the chair by le Corbusier plays its role, following the principles of its creator: this chair offers a comfortable seat, with a design absolutely simple but at the same time elegant. Thanks to these characteristic this chair could be inserted in every kind and style of furniture. And this unique style made this chair an evergreen in the design, current even a century from its creation. So if you choose a chair by le Corbusier for your home or office, this decision is always right: this chair should give a touch of elegance
