The Le Corbusier group referred to their LC2 and LC3 collections (1928) as "cushion baskets," which they designed as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. These pieces reverse the standard structures of sofas and chairs by having frames that are externalized. With thick, resilient pillows resting within the steel frames, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style.
Le Corbusier intended to create a set of furniture for the small spaces in his "housing machines" that could be industrially produced in large quantities at moderate prices. Chrome plated tubular steel frame. Loose cushions filled with polyurethane foam and dacron wool. Custom colors and options, such as longer legs and/or extra cushioning, are available upon request.
Our reproduction model perfectly encapsulates his vision. This is a special order item and can take up to 8 weeks to deliver.
