or Call to Order

The LC2 Petit Confort, or Fauteuil Grand Confort — petit modèle by Cassina was orig­i­nally designed as seating for the Villa Church in 1928 with produc­tion begin­ning in 1965. The LC2 seating series, along with the more gener­ously propor­tioned LC3 seating group, includes a club chair along with two and three seat sofas. Grand Confort is perhaps the most iconic collec­tion of seating ever created and accord­ingly is one of the most copied. Char­lotte Perriand referred to the LC2 and LC3 seating as cushion baskets” as their squared and recti­lin­ear forms feature an exte­rior perime­ter of tubular steel rails into which recti­lin­ear cush­ions have been inserted to liter­ally pad” the interior. 

The LC2 is avail­able in a number of enamel finishes as well as chromed steel – its foam-filled cush­ions feature a choice of poly­ester or down padding and are avail­able in a number of textile and leather upholstery options.

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”.
