Lc3 Grand Modele by Le Corbusier: a Couch for Women

The lc3 grand modele by Le Corbusier is a couch: this sofa is one of the most famous creation by the Swiss designer and architect in the design seats. The sofa grand modele lc3 belongs to the “Grand Comfort” series (that includes other models of armchair and sofa) and is the result of the depth studies by Le Corbusier in human anatomy.

Le Corbusier studied this argument with a big commitment and concluded that the human male and female body: these differences are very important to project and feature couch, chair and armchair, and making seats that are cozy and comfortable. From this studies on the human anatomy originate the differences between the models of couch projected for men (the Petite modele) and for women (the Grand Modele).

LC3 Grand Modele by Le Corbusier was designed in 1928, and presented at the  Salon d'Automne in Paris in 1929. The differences among the groups are that the LC2 is more compact, and the LC3 has down-wrapped cushions that create a softer look and feel. The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections as "cushion baskets" which they designed in 1928 as a modernist response to the traditional club chair.

The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections as "cushion baskets," which they designed as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. These pieces reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames that are externalized. With thick, resilient pillows resting within the steel frames, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style.

The resulting aesthetic of the simple tubular structure is remarkably relevant to how we live today, more than 80 years later

The lc3 grand modele by Le Corbusier is featured in two different models, one with two seats and the other with three seats: both of this models are solid and comfortable, and the difference between them is in dimension. The “Petite Modele” couch is shorter and you can put it in a smaller room, like a study or a small living room. The couch lc3 grand modele is bigger, and it’s suitable for bigger room.

If you put a couch Lc3 grand modele in a big room, like a living room, this sofa will give a glimpse of style at the furniture and stand out, without smothering the other furniture or preventing free movements in the room.

Le Corbusier has made his chair, armchair and sofa, choosing solid and comfortable materials, like steel (for the framework) and leather (for the coating). A century after the project and the realization of the lc3 grand modele by Le Corbusier you can find a beautiful couch, at the same time comfortable and solid, and characterized by a unique style, sober but at the same time elegant and modern.
