Lc4 by Le Corbusier: Made for Relax

In the design production of the famous Swiss architect Le Corbusier couldn’t  being missed a chaise lounge projected for relax: and the chaise lounge lc4 by le Corbusier is faithful to the canon of his creator. In this chaise lounge the style of the object represents its principal function: like all the chaise lounge that is rest and relax. The Swiss called the chaise lounge lc4 by le Corbusier the “relaxing machine”: using this chaise lounge characterized by a new design, you can outstretch all your body in a natural position, very comfortable and relaxing.

The chaise lounge lc4 by le Corbusier has a framework made in tubular steel (the Swiss designer used often this material in his work) and sheet metal, while the mattress is no deformable thanks to the padding in polyurethane foam, and with a leather coating (in the original version). When the LC4 was first introduced some eighty years ago at the Paris Autumn Salon, reactions were divided.

The machine-like construction with frame and base in steel contradicted all former beauty conventions, and met so much incomprehension and rejection. However amongst those designers and critics who recognized the revolutionary potential of the chaise lounge, Le Corbusier's lounger was met with widespread enthusiasm.

The chaise lounge was part of a collection of avant-garde furniture developed for the Paris Autumn Salon by the designers Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand and which today occupies a significant event in the history of design of early modernism, for all the LC4 chaise longue.

Le Corbusier was born Charles Edouard Jeanneret-Gris in 1887 in the Swiss village of La Chaux-de-Fonds, and found his way to design via first painting and subsequently architecture. After studying architecture, a longer stay in Paris and study tours throughout Europe, in 1922 Le Corbusier published the text "A contemporary city for three million inhabitants," in which he first expounded his radical, purist position. In 1928 Le Corbusier incorporated these views in the LC4 chaise lounge and the other furniture designs he developed together with Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret for the Paris Autumn Salon.

The winning  relaxing characteristic of the chaise lounge lc4 by le Corbusier surely is the tilting movement: it is not regulated by complicated mechanism, but this system is stabilize by the weight of human body and the position of the user. Working this way the chaise lounge lc4 by le Corbusier can  easily adapted to the characteristic and the needs of every single user.  

For the design aspect, the chaise lounge lc4 by le Corbusier, like all the other creations by the Swiss designer, is a piece of furniture modern and elegant, that can be inserted in every kind of furniture. If you will buy a chaise lounge lc4 you can find it with classic leather coating but also with a fresh and practical cotton coating, available in various colors. So if you are looking for a piece of furniture that is at the same time elegant and comfortable, the chaise lounge lc4 is what you need: you will find an elegant chaise lounge but also a little corner for relax in your home or office.
