Lounging on LC4


The original LC furniture range by Le Corbusier, whose actual name is Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, was a system of furniture co-designed with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand in 1928. The tubular steel furniture, especially the famous LC4 chaise and Grand Confort chair (both of which are in the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art) projected a new rationalist aesthetic that came to epitomize the International Style.

The LC4 longue chaise from Cassina is available with adjustable chrome or matte black cradle and matte black base. The upholstery of the base is available in the following materials: hairy skin with black leather headrest, all leather with a black leather headrest, and in a special canvas with leather footrest and headrest.
The LC4 Chaise Longue (or “long chair” in English) was dubbed the “relaxing machine” because of the way it mirrors the body’s natural curves while appearing to float above its supports. Legend has it Le Corbusier would take naps in the LC4 and when his arms hit the floor he would wake up (natural alarm clock).

Design your own version of the LC4 at the SR Hughes showroom Oct 6 – 18, 2011 during Cassina’s Fall Le Corbusier Sale and save 15% on all things Corbu.
