Armchair LC2 by Le Corbusier: Comfort and Functionality

The armchair LC2 by le corbusier is one of the most important and revolutionary creation by the Swiss designer and architect in the projecting and realizing seats. Indeed Le Corbusier projected and realized a series of seats (that includes various kind of chair, 2 and 3 seats couch and a best seller chaise lounge) for the Salon d’Automne in 1929: this collection entered rightly in the history of furniture design.

Indeed this series of seats, that includes the armchair LC2 by Le Corbusier, descends from a depth study on human anatomy made by the Swiss designer: Le Corbusier reported the results of these studios in the creation of objects that were absolutely perfect and comfortable for the users.

One of the most influential architects of the 20th century Le Corbusier is arguably best-known today for his design work. Born in 1887 in the Swiss canton of Neuchâtel as Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris, he initially completed an apprenticeship as engraver before increasingly turning to painting and architecture.

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. 

Indeed the armchair LC2 by Le Corbusier (like the other seats of this series) was projected and realized following the canon of the Modernism (a very important artistic movement of the last century, of whom Le Corbusier was one of the most important exponent), particularly the functionality canon: following this canon every object (or any building architecture) should be made first of all for the users and should be absolutely functional.

And for a seat like the armchair LC2  by Le Corbusier the functionality is almost the comfort: indeed a seat is functional when receive comfortably any kind of user and offer a relaxing support.
In contrast to the LC3 armchair the LC2 armchair has a narrower seat and is supplemented by a matching sofa, the two-seater LC2. Especially exciting is the strong contrast to the LC1 armchair which simply consists of the characteristic tubular steel frame and non-upholstered, high quality covers.

If you choose the armchair LC2 by le Corbusier for your home or office, you can find this unique object in various finishes, all with high level materials and realizations. And with the armchair LC2 by le Corbusier you will buy not only an elegant object, but also a very comfortable armchair.
