Product description

An icon of modern rationalism, now equally at home outdoors: evocatively effective by the pool, on the open
decks of a yacht and in any open air space. This extension of functionality is consistent with the
contemplation of nature and the interaction with open spaces that is a feature of all of Le Corbusier’s
work, from ribbon windows to the use of pilotis and roof gardens.
The structure is made entirely from polished chrome-effect brushed INOX steel with special corrosion
resistance properties strengthened by high silver content welding. The feet are in PVC.
Similar attention is focused on the upholstery. The specialised PVC-coated high-durability polyester
fabric guarantees excellent colour fastness and resistance to water, oil-based substances and UV rays.
The tailoring is designed to perfectly replicate the leather upholstery of the indoor model.
The ISO 9001 certified fabric, available in five different colours, is stretched over the structure using
specially designed polished stainless steel springs.
Every armchair comes with a protective water repellent cover for use during the winter season.
Measurements: 65 x 60 x h. 40/64 cm

Concept

Sling chair with polished trivalent chrome plated (CR3) or semigloss black enamel steel frame.
Seat and back:
— ponyskin or cowskin (black leather arms);
— saddle leather in a wide range of colours with matching arms.
An outdoor version is also available for this model.

This lightweight and compact chair is a counterpoint to the Fauteuil grand confort, more massive, and it is in perfect balance with the table in steel tube and the chaiselongue. There are three versions of this chair which were all designed for diff erent uses: the model that was shown at the Salon d’Automne in 1929, the version created for Villa Church in 1928, and another version created for the 1930 exhibition the Union des Artistes Modernes.

LC1 Outdoor:
The structure is made entirely from polished AISI 304 stainless steel. The fabric is available in 5 colours and uses a high resilience polyester yarn, PVC coated. The fabric is stretched over the structure thanks to special brush polished stainless steel springs and is completely waterproof.
