Modern Classics Furniture Reproductions: Bauhaus Modern - Mid Century Modern - Scandinavian Modern
One of the most influential of 20th century architects, Chareli-Edouard Jeanneret, who chose to be know as “Le Corbusier”, was also responsible for some of the Modern Movements best-known furniture. In collaboration with designer Charlotte Perriand and his architect cousin Pierre Jeanneret, he helped create machine age classics such as the LC2 “grand confort” armchair, the Basculant Sling chair and the chaise lounge chair. Free from any form of decoration, these tubular steel designs embody relaxed and timeless elegance.
Originally designed in 1928 for a villa in the Ville d Avray, the first public introduction of this model was at the Salon d'Automne des Artistes Dcorateurs in Paris in 1929. Known as the Chaise Lounge Chair, the design concept has been created with an reclining system which allows the user to adjust the reclining position to the desired comfort position.
