or Call to Order

An icon with a versa­tile and func­tional soul, the LC7 Armchair was designed in 1927 by Char­lotte Perriand for her own apart­ment in the Place Saint-Sulpice in Paris. First exhib­ited at the 1928 Salon des Artiste Déco­ra­teurs, it was also shown at the Salon d’Au­tomne one year later, where it formed part of a collec­tion that Char­lotte Perriand co-created with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jean­neret. Uphol­stered in leather or fabric, this swivel chair, avail­able in a four- or five-leg config­u­ra­tion features expanded polyurethane and padded poly­ester filling for back and seat. The LC7 outdoor features a stain­less steel frame finished with powder paints designed for outdoor use and avail­able in five textured colors. A special fabric poly­ester yarn cover repli­cates the aesthet­ics of the indoor models. In 2016, the struc­ture of the LC7 Outdoor was further updated, which has led to its obtain­ing Italian Catas certification.

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”.
