Description

  • Modern take on an 18th century seat
  • Chic, minimalist design from 1929
  • Comfortable, adjustable seat

Charles Le C. Basculant Chair

The "Basculant Chair" takes its inspiration from the 18th Century foldable wooden seat, which was used on picnics during Colonial times. Charles Le Corbusier’s creation from 1929 combines form and function in a beautiful, minimalist design; the adjustable backrest provides additional seating comfort. Featured in variety of advertisements, the elegant lines and subtlety of the profile of the Chair has established a timeless design appeal. As one of the pioneers of modern architecture, Le Corbusier’s infatuation with proportion and harmony of the forms has been infused in the finesse of his furniture designs.

Produced by hand for maximum precision of the design outline, ItaliaDesigns manufactures the Chair in quality classic or premium leather upholstery and a stylish steel frame.

About the Designer

Charles Le C.

Charles Le C.

Accredited as one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture, Charles Le Corbusier was born in Switzerland in 1887. His influence as an architect, designer, urbanist and writer cannot be underestimated, touching and affecting numerous nations worldwide across Europe, America and Asia.

Dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities, Le Corbusier applied such ideology to furniture design. He was obsessed with creating pieces that truly take human shape, form and behaviour into consideration, recognising the deep relationship between proportion and harmony. This ideology and an application of architectural genius are both evident within Le Corbusier’s furniture.

Awarded the prestigious Frank P. Brown Medal and AIA Gold Medal in 1961, a celebration of Le Corbusier’s work is best summed up by his portrait featuring on the 10 Swiss francs banknote. His work is visible and showcased on an international scale, with the National Museum of Western Art, Tokyo and the Museum and Gallery of Art in India actually designed by this forefather of Modernism.
