or Call to Order

A light, compact chair, the LC1 designed and presented at the 1929 Salon d’Automne along with other impor­tant models, such as the LC2 and LC3 armchairs, the LC6 table, and the LC4 chaise-longue. As with all of Le Corbusier’s works, the LC1 derives from an in-depth study of human posture. In this partic­u­lar case, the chair is intended to be relax­ing and to foster conver­sa­tion. The balance between form and func­tion is achieved by using the Modulor, a system based on the male body’s typical measure­ments and a math­e­mat­i­cal language informed by the propor­tions of univer­sal harmony. Its perfect compo­si­tional simplic­ity, which can adapt for use in various contexts, is now avail­able in an outdoor version, treated with special textured paint in five colors and with a collec­tion of specially designed covers.

Le Corbusier, Perriand, Jeanneret

France (1927)

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”.
