Lc3 Sofa by Le Corbusier: Petite e Grand

The various model of lc3 sofa by le corbusier probably are the most ingenious and important in the Swiss designer and architectural works (Le Corbusier borne in Switzerland but became naturalized in France). Indeed Le Corbusier was a famous architect (one of the most important exponents of the Modernism in this field) but also spent a lot of his study and work to object furniture design (he worked in collaboration with Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeannerette).

And Le Corbusier made furniture objects not only beautiful and elegant, but also studied with maximum attention to functionality and usability for a great number of users (following the Modernist rule of respect of object function). And the various models of lc3 sofa by le Corbusier probably are the most interesting example of this particular kind of study.
The Le Corbusier sofa set series was originally designed in 1928 for the Maison La Roche house in Paris.

The design is the modernist response to the traditional club chair. The series comes in a smaller version referred to as the LC2 and a larger version known as the LC3 considered more appropriate for practical living purposes.

The various models of lc3 sofa by le Corbusier are distinguished for a particular characteristic: there are big sofa, named Le Grand Modele (studied to receive women body, made with a bigger seat) and small sofa, named  Le Petite Modele (studied instead to receive male body, made with smaller lines). We can find this distinction in every models of lc3 sofa by Le Corbusier: it gives not much evident differences between the various couches, but significant in the general style of the sofa itself.

Remarkably comfortable, Le Corbusier often referred to the pieces as "cushion baskets". A striking feature of the LC3 is the externalized metal frame supporting the base, extending as the legs and running the entire length of the piece. It’s not just the front of the LC3 that is attractive, the metal frame work means design detail from the sides and back allowing for easy placement even in the middle of a room.

And all of these facts show that the lc3 sofas by le Corbusier were studied with a great attention to human anatomy (that is different between man and woman), with the aim to offer a major comfort for the seat. This was really a revolution in the design furniture, that hasn’t meet the consumer and critic approval at the first time (the lc series was showed for the first time in the Salon D’Automne in Paris, in 1928).

If you will choose one of the various model of lc3 sofa by le Corbusier for your home or office you will have not only a comfortable sofa, excellent for your relaxing moments, but also a piece of history furniture. This model of couch melted new and solid material for the framework (the tubular steel), with the comfort of big and soft cushions (cladded with elegant leather). An unique piece in the modern design furniture, that will give a touch of elegance at every furniture.
