or Call to Order

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

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”.
