LC10‑P High Table
The LC10‑P high table made its debut as part of the “Equipement Intérieur d’une Habitation” setting at the 1929 Salon d’Automne in Paris. The clean-cut frame of the table highlights the highly original approach to the chrome finish of the tubular steel legs, and the way the colors from the Corbusier palette are applied on the laminated trim. Charlotte Perriand revisited the design, which was originally presented as a writing desk, in 1984. One year later, Cassina relaunched the LC10‑P with new variants appropriate to contemporary needs of today. The collection includes a low table as well, both in square and rectangular formats.
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”.
