The idea for the LC 1 chair with tiltable backrest originates back to the colonial era when British officers carried similar foldable wooden chairs with them. Le Corbusier of course thought of steel and the result was the "Fauteuil a Dossier Basculant" as the LC 1 was introduced to the public at the Salon d'Automne in 1929.
As is the case with all Le Corbusier designs the LC 1 was conceived in close collaboration with his team, Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret. First models, for example upholstered in blue satin, were already manufactured for the Villa Church in 1928.
Due to its characteristic, almost sparse form he LC 1 primarily lends itself to set a strong stilistic accent in a room. In addition the chair doesn't take much space and is surprisingly comfortable thanks to the tiltable backrest.
The LC 1, like all reproductions by steelform, is manufactured according to the original design and subject to stringent quality controls.
|Due to its small proportions groups of LC 1 chairs can be arranged easliy even in confined spaces. Hence this Le Corbusier chair is an ideal choice for waiting rooms.|
This delicate designer chair literally fits in any corner.
