or Call to Order

The LC20 Casiers Stan­dard storage unit was designed as part of a project for resi­den­tial furni­ture by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jean­neret for the Pavil­lon de l’Esprit Nouveau at the Paris Expo­si­tion des Arts Déco­rat­ifs in 1925. The intro­duc­tion of modular storage units along­side other move­able pieces was a pioneer­ing choice that went beyond the tradi­tional concept
of furni­ture.

LC20 Casiers Stan­dard is unique and time­less, conceived to confer an archi­tec­tural look to the envi­ron­ment. These units could accom­mo­date a wide array of objects in a partic­u­lar context, even going so far as to create parti­tion walls. In 2016, Cassina relaunched the Casiers Stan­dard with a more contem­po­rary look, that is more versa­tile and func­tional than ever before. Avail­able in eigh­teen fixed compo­si­tions, see specs for full details. 


Le Corbusier, Perriand, Jeanneret


In 1922, Le Corbusier began working in the new rue de Sèvres, Paris, atelier with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret with whom he shared research projects and design criteria in a profound and life-long professional relationship. In October 1927, the pair decided to draw on the contribution of a young architect who had already begun to establish a reputation on the architectural scene of the time: Charlotte Perriand. Their collaboration lasted through to 1937 and was extremely fruitful, especially in the field of furniture design. The partnership was highly significant, both in terms of the cultural weight of their achievements and their professional successes. It was together with Charlotte Perriand that the pair tackled the innovative project for “l’équipement d'intérieur de l’habitation”.
