Le Corbusier LC2 Armchair

The original LC furniture range by Le Corbusier, whose actual name is Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, was a system of furniture co-designed with his cousins Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand in 1928. The tubular steel furniture projected a new rationalist aesthetic that came to epitomize the International Style. The original LC2 Grand Comfort is in the permanent design collection of the Museum of Modern Art.

The Le Corbusier LC2 Petit Modele Armchair is what Le Corbusier called a “cushion basket”, and comfortable is probably the best word to describe it.  The leather-lined cushions sink under your weight, molding around you while providing plenty of support.  Designed in 1928, the LC2 has earned itself a spot around the table of the most iconic modern chairs in the last century.
