LC3 Grande Confort
Cassina’s LC3 Grande Confort seating series includes a club chair and two and three-seat sofas. The Grand Confort is perhaps the most iconic collection of seating ever created and, accordingly, one of the most copied. Charlotte Perriand referred to the LC2 and LC3 seating as cushion baskets. Their squared and rectilinear forms feature an exterior perimeter of tubular steel rails into which rectilinear cushions are inserted to pad the interior. The LC3 club chair frame is available in several enamel finishes and chromed steel. Its foam-filled cushions feature a choice of polyester or down padding and are available in many 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”.
