LC3 chair by Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret, Cassina.
Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, known as Le Corbusier, was born at La Chaux-de-Fonds, in Switzerland, in 1887; he died in France, in 1965.
The multi-talented Le Corbusier was at the same time a painter, architect, designer and writer, he is now recognized as one of the most influent architect of the 20th century design.
The LC3 armchair, also called Grand Confort, grand modèle, is the larger version of the LC2 armchair and a design icon. Designed in 1928, it is the archetype of the modern chair. The careful separation of the frame from its inner cushions showcases the chair’s rationalist approach.
Armchair with chrome-plated bent tubular steel frame with black leather-upholstered cushions.
With signature and serial number engraved in the frame.
