LC2 Petit Confort Chair

About the Design

Does anything sound more comfortable than a “cushion basket”? That’s what Charles-Édouard Jeanneret (1887–1965), a.k.a. Le Corbusier, and his collaborators, cousin Pierre Jeanneret (1896–1967) and Charlotte Perriand (1903–99), dubbed the LC2 Petit Confort chair (as well as the rest of the similarly shaped seats in the LC series), the group’s modern take on an age-old form: the club chair.

The LC2 Petit Confort chair quite literally inverts the traditional construction of a chair (or any piece of furniture, really) using an exoskeleton of chromed tubular steel instead of hiding the construction inside, prioritizing an emphasis on function that boldly declared their modernist approach. Meanwhile, thick leather cushions make the seat exceptionally comfortable and lend it a boxy appearance that is compatible with the architecture and design of the International Style in which the group worked.

The trio conceived the cube-like seats in the LC collection in 1928 for exhibition at the 1929 Parisian art fair Salon d’Automne, and Austrian manufacturer Thonet was producing the group's designs at the time. Decades later, in 1965, when the designers’ modernist style had become widely popular, the LC2 Petit Confort chair was issued by Italian manufacturer and high-end furniture company Cassina, which continues to produce it today, along with the stylistically similar LC3 collection.

The LC2 armchair was born of a period of experimentation with tubular chrome by the Le Corbusier group — archival sketches authored by Le Corbusier and Perriand are demonstrative of a two-year collaborative process, while Le Corbusier's brief identifies the latter as having been put in charge of furniture and interiors. (Furniture designer and architect Marcel Breuer, whose Cesca chair was similarly structured, was also working with chrome.) The use of chrome in the trio’s LC lines was groundbreaking at that point, and its aesthetic aligned well with Le Corbusier’s having given the furniture the mechanical-sounding label “domestic equipment.”

Pair Modernist Bauhaus Art Deco Basculant LC1 Sling Chairs by Le Corbusier
By Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand
Located in Topeka, KS
Gorgeous pair of vintage Modernist, Bauhaus, or Art Deco Basculant LC1 Sling Chairs by Le Corbusier. Comprised of chrome plated tubular steel frames, spring seat platforms and back cross straps, black leather arm rest straps, and hair-on cowhide leather upholstery. Beautiful condition, keeping in mind that these are vintage and not new so will have signs of use and wear. There are some worn areas in the hair on the seats and normal cracking in the arm straps, but they are intact. The chrome is in good condition. We have replaced a few of the springs. Please see photos and zoom in for details. We attempt to portray any imperfections. Circa, 1950-1970’s. Mooooooove over boring seating… We have an ASTONISHING pair of Basculant LC1 Sling Chairs by Le Corbusier!! They are absolutely stunning and comprised of minimalist chrome plated tubular steel frames, spring seat platform and back cross straps, black leather arm rest straps, and they feature a handsome brown, white, and black multicolored hair-on cowhide leather upholstery. IT. IS. BEAUTIFUL!!! The Le Corbusier Basculant LC1 Sling Chair is the best-known version of the reinterpretation of the British "officers chair"… and now they need to be YOUR chairs. A side note: The owner of our store personally knows that these were purchased pre-owned around 1977, so we know that these chairs were made prior to that date. Probably 1950-1970’s. Thonet was the original manufacturer in the 1930’s and in 1960 Cassina obtained those rights. So even though they are not marked they are most likely Thonet or Cassina. Either way, they are FABULOUS!!! The seats are ergonomic in design with a back angle creating supreme comfort and the clean lines establish a timeless appeal. This pair will blend in beautifully with your other Bauhaus or Art Deco style furnishings or they will make a bold statement on their own. They will be wonderful seating across from the sofa in the living room, as occasional seating in the family room, in your bedroom or dressing area, or facing the fireplace in the study. The captivating combination of the chrome plated tubular steel and the natural cowhide exude warmth and luxury while remaining stylish and functional. These chairs are EXACTLY what the designer ordered!! Le Corbusier was born in 1887 as Charles Edouard Jeanneret and is widely considered the most important Modernist chair designer in France. He began experimenting with furniture design in 1928 after seeing a model apartment designed by the architect Charlotte Perriland whom he invited to join his studio. His cousin Pierre Jeanneret also collaborated on many of his designs and Thonet was the first manufacturer of his designs in the 1930’s. Along with Walter Gropius, Mies Van der Rohe, and Theo Van Doesburg, Le Corbusier was considered the father of Modernism. He created a range of chairs that express his ideas with great sophistication. The Le Corbusier Basculant Chair...
