Product description

Here the seat and
backrest are in a natural coloured raw canvas with a profile in natural leather. The same material and trim is
also found on the tapered armrests. Reference to the colonial armchair, of which the LC1 represents the
natural evolution, is evident; confirmation of Le Corbusier’s almost Darwinian concept that the ideal piece of
furniture is the result of a long selection process over time. A fascinating journey in which forms respond
with increasingly immediacy to real requirements.

Product family


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.
