The Grand Confort armchair, petit modèle, is part of the serie created by Le Corbusier in collaboration with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand in 1929.

Considered a cult piece of 20th century design, it has been published by Cassina since 1965.

Charles-Edouard Jeanneret used from the 1920s the pseudonym with which he would go down in history: Le Corbusier. An architect, designer, urban planner and writer, according to whom the home was a “a machine to inhabit”.

After much reflection on the idea of a seat, on the uses and functions that it should satisfy through the day, he formed his contemporary response to the traditional armchair, the Gran Confort series, made up of the LC1 “tilting”, LC2 “petit modèle”, LC3 “grand modèle” and LC4 “chaise long”.

According to the architect, the armchair was the most suitable seat to have a chat, since it gave a courteous and nice appearance. The LC2 fulfilled its functions breaking the standards of the armchair of the time: its structure was placed on the outside as a frame and it also showed us the concept and technical process with which it had been built.

As in numerous Bauhaus designs, the metal tube was used, replacing artisan carpentry with industrial production, and with a shiny chrome finish that gave it a touch of sophistication and luxury.

Although Gropius´s legacy was patented, Le Corbusier differentiated it from the Bauhaus designs by giving the backrest, seat and armrest padding, made with goose feather. Weber, with the permission of the creator of “The Modulor”, subsetted it by polyurethane foam.

Also known as the “Cube Armchair”, it is part of what Le Corbusier called “furniture for the home of the new man”. A standard piece, proportionate, harmonic, that fills our senses, that combines the balance between form and function, and that has played an important role in the history of furniture design.

Now you can customize it and adapt it to your tastes in terms of finishes, fabric and color, but its dimensions will continue to respond to those that the pioneer of modern architecture, Charles Le Corbusier, conceived to answer the shape, silhouette and behavior of the human body.
