Le Corbusier LC1 chair
Vintage 1970s Le Corbusier LC1 chair with cow hide.
This chair was designed c1928 and is attributed to Le Corbusier, his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and a young female French architect called Charlotte Perriand. The trio collaborated together on a number of successful prototypes at their atelier in the rue de Sevres, Paris between 1927-1937. These designs became known as the l’equipment d’interieur de l’habitation project.
Fabrication: chrome plated tubular frame, leather looped armrests, renewed cow hide.
DC Stylist: The relatively small proportions of the LC1 make it the perfect statement piece for smaller homes and apartments. A masculine style bedroom chair.
DC Collectors: Wears Le Corbusier’s signature, Cassina branding and original serial number engraved in the tubular frame. We also have a verification email from Cassina Italy. Beware of fake replicas.
DC Insider Knowledge: Originally owned by a notoriously eccentric Melbourne architect. Purchased by him in the 1970s.
DC Insider: 2015 marked the 50th anniversary of Cassina’s involvement in the production of the LC designs.
