The LC1 Armchair, from Cassina, was designed by Le Corbusier in collaboration with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and architect Charlotte Perriand. Their designs form the LC Series - a range of furniture classics.
The steel tubular frame is a prominent feature of the LC1, which can be selected with a polished chrome plated or matt black enamel finish frame. The geometric structure reflects 'purism' and functional perfection that was ahead of its time. This simple form includes a number of practical features including a reclining backrest. The taut self-supporting back rest and seat is fitted with a series of visible tubular steel springs guaranteeing maximum comfort.
The sophisticated armrests consist of two straps of leather which are suspended via a rotational play at either end. LC1 is available in a number of leather or ponyskin options. The leather options have matching arm straps to the seat and back whilst the ponyskin options have black leather straps.
The LC1 Armchair is part of the the "Cassina Maestri" collection. These are certified original designs, each of which is marked with the signature of the designer and the Cassina Maestri logo, together with the production number and identity card.
