LC1 UAM Chair

for  Cassina

or Call to Order

This version of the LC1 chair was presented in 1930 at the first exhi­bi­tion of the Union of Modern Artists, demon­strat­ing how the furni­ture pieces presented the previ­ous year at the Salon d’Automne could be made using a wider variety of uphol­ster­ies. In this case, the added detail was a refined leather rim made accord­ing to the finest saddlery tech­nique, which inspired high fashion collec­tions already in the 1930s. 

The struc­ture of the LC1 UAM chair features polished triva­lent chrome plated (CR3) steel. The armrests are wider at the front and tapered towards the back. Seat, back­rest and armrests come in self-support­ing ecru fabric with natural leather trimmings.

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”.
