The LC3 Corbusier Armchair, from Cassina, was designed by Le Corbusier in collaboration with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and architect Charlotte Perriand. Their creations form the LC Series - a range of furniture classics.
The LC3 Chair has slightly larger proportions to its counterpart LC2 Chair and a fixed seat, rather than a loose cushion. The greater depth and width and lower overall height and seat guarantees maximum comfort. It has a steel tubular cage which graciously embraces the self-supporting cushion elements, pioneering Corbusier's clean modernist aesthetic. The steel frame is bent and welded into a single structure and is available with either a polished chrome plated or matt painted enamel finish in a choice of colours. This contrasts against the range of leathers or canvas upholstery choices available which can be selected from a range of hues. The cushioned structure comprises of a number of expanded foam panels securing their square shape.
The LC3 Armchairis 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 on the frame, together with the production number and identity card.
