Charles Le C. LC2 Petit Armchair

The LC Petit Armchair is among the most recognised furniture pieces of the 20th century. The expression of volume and emphasis on balance in the chair’s construction follow the established principles of the International Style – a major style in architecture that emerged in the 1920s. The visible, external frame defines the geometric forms of the armchair – the result of the creative design vision of Charles Le C. Featured in the permanent collection of the Design Museum, the iconic piece is a salute to the leading style principles of the previous century that have proven to be timeless.

ItaliaDesigns produces the classic LC Petit Armchair with a chrome-plated tubular steel frame, which surrounds the padded cushions covered in quality classic or premium leather upholstery. The chair is available in a variety of colours to match any décor.

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.
