The LC14 01 Stool was designed by Le Corbusier to furnish his 'Cababon', a primitive log cabin which sits on a wooded cliff overlooking the Mediterranean. This retreat was the only building he built for himself and shows an alternative side to the modern maestro. Instead of concentrating on materials such as concrete and steel, Le Corbusier furnished 'Cababon' with wooden designs.
Cassina have released this version and the smaller LC14 02 Stool made from oak. This stool is constructed of solid chestnut with a natural wood colour and is the perfect example of Corbusier's intense design experimentation.
This simple yet refined seat was inspired by wooden whiskey boxes that Le Corbusier found washed up on the beach and then used as chairs. The visible dovetail joints emphasise the links between the solid wood planes and reinforce its workmanship. The oblong openings act as handles making it easy to position.
The LC14 01 Stool 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.
