The idea informing the LC6 table, which was launched in 1929 at the Salon d’Automne in Paris lies in the distinction between the support and what is supported, in other words, the base and the tabletop. The four intermediate structures highlight the separation of the two parts. These both regulate the height and maintain the due distance between the table-tops heavy base and delicate lines. The base was designed in 1928, taking its cue from the oval profiles used in aeronautical design to maintain the distance between a biplane’s wings. The current model is also available as an outdoor version, with a frame in stainless steel finished in powder paints designed for outdoor use and available in five textured colors.
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”.
