or Call to Order

The LC1 Lounge chair designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jean­neret, and Char­lotte Perriand for Cassina derives from an in-depth study of human posture. In this case, the Chair is intended to be relax­ing and foster conver­sa­tion. The balance between form and func­tion is achieved through the use of the Modulor, a system based on the typical measure­ments of the male body and a math­e­mat­i­cal language informed by the propor­tions of univer­sal harmony. The back­rest, attached to the frame by a rod that allows the angle of tilt to change, moves as you shift, offer­ing contin­u­ous support. The Chair’s compact size and comfort make it ideal for small spaces.

The LC1 chair was designed and presented at the 1929 Salon d’Au­tomne with other impor­tant models, such as the LC2 and LC3 armchairs, LC6 table, and LC4 chaise-longue. Each piece is signed, numbered, and includes a certifi­cate of authenticity. 

LC1 is avail­able as part of our quick-ship program. Please see the spec sheet to the left for quick-ship details or call 800.886.0867 for more information.


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”.
