Description

One of the most iconic design chairs in history, the chrome steel frame LC4 is also known as the "relaxation machine", which was part of a series of designs by Le Corbusier's studio. It was exhibited at the Salon d’Automne in Paris in 1929. The design was considered groundbreaking due to its tubular-steel elements and human centric design.

The chaise consists of two main components: a stationary base and an upper frame that glides back and forth to find the perfect position. Its sweeping, curved silhouette supports the back and raises the legs to provide optimal relaxation at any angle of inclination. It is often referred to as the definitive chaise lounge, an iconic work that creates a perfect balance between geometric purity and ergonomic intent.

While the LC4 was popular in France, it only became internationally celebrated after being licensed to Italian maker Cassina in the mid-1960s. Today, Cassina holds the exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation and the chaise is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

Provenance: Purchased in the 1980s from OMK in London.
