Vintage Cassina Black Leather LC4 Chaise Lounge Chair by Le Corbusier, 1980

About the Item

The LC4 is a Bauhaus classic and is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Each piece is signed, numbered and manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. This Cassina LC4 lounge chair produced in 1980 features a black leather pad and headrest on a tubular steel frame with polished chrome finish over a black lacquered steel base. Impressed mark 'LC4 15591' to chrome frame and 'Cassina' mark to steel base. Made in Italy. The iconic and ageless LC4 chaise lounge chair was created by Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret in 1928 and exhibited at the Paris Salon d’Automne in 1929. Starting with the analysis of lounge chairs and the proportions inferred by Le Corbusier in the Modulor, the chaise longue embodies the relationship between form and function in the balance between design purity and comfort in the shape of the seat, which is modeled on the natural contours of the body. Le Corbusier held that furniture should be “extensions of our limbs and adapted to human functions.” Designed to echo the natural curves of the human body in repose, the moveable “floating” frame of this iconic chaise adjusts along the base, following your every move from upright sitting to full recline. Known as the “relaxing machine,” the LC4 balances form and function with beautiful precision. CONDITION Very good vintage condition with wear consistent with age and use. Polished chrome frame is generally bright and clean with some patches of chrome loss and patina especially along lower rung and underside. Mild patina to black base. Perfectly aged leather is soft and supple with expected wear with normal use over time. All new Cassina brand plastic feet. DIMENSIONS W 22" x D 63" x H 33" Seat Height: 17.5”
