Black leather with chrome frame, as shown. Fabric and further frame options available upon request.
Designed in 1928 this chair became famous in 1965 with Cassina, the LC4 is the definitive chaise longue: built in a shape designed for relaxation, the chair was created when the three designers teamed together to put man at the centre of their design, taking the idea that form and function should be at the service of relaxation, creating a perfect balance between its geometric purity and its ergonomic intent. The stability of the frame – for any angle of inclination – is guaranteed by the friction through rubber tubes that cover the cross bar of the base.
Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand
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”.
The resulting designs were of great intellectual value and considerable commercial success.
Thanks to Cassina’s ongoing production, there is continued interest in the conceptual contents of the work and the level of quality attained.
Founded in 1927, Cassina launched industrial design in Italy during the 1950's. The company was pioneering thanks to its striking inclination for research and innovation, working with important architects and designers and encouraging them to envision fresh designs, a characteristic that still distinguishes the brand today. Cassina's identity lies in the innovative fusion of technological skill and traditional craftsmanship. The collections feature iconic furniture by great modern architects including Le Corbusier, Mackintosh, Wright, Rietveld, Perriand, Albini and Zanuso, as well as important architects and designers such as Bellini, Lissoni, Magistretti, Pesce, Ponti and Starck. Since 2015 Patricia Urquiola is the Art Director of Cassina.
