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
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”.
