Cassina LC3 sofa by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand with Tarò linen cover.
In contrast to the LC2 sofa, the LC3 sofa is designed with much more generous proportions (and a little lower).
LC3 Sofa 2-seater: Dimensions: 168 x 73 cm, height 62 cm, seat height 40 cm.
Cassina has processed the highest quality synthetic filling in this LC3, it is very comfortable and has a homely character. In the 1920s, the LC furniture was produced with an upholstery with down or horsehair, in the 1960s Le Corbusier together with Cassina developed the synthetic filling.
The sofa comes with a Tarò linen cover, this is incredibly tactile and in our opinion much more comfortable than leather. The Tarò is a top quality linen fabric, see original Cassina label.
The covers can be removed by zipper and can be washed very easily. The overall condition of the sofa is very nice.
Together with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret, Le Corbusier (or Charles-Édouard Jeanneret) founded the famous architecture firm in Paris in 1923. While they initially focused on architectural designs, after Charlotte Perriand joined the firm in 1927, they created an extensive furniture collection that is now one of the most famous design classics. In the 1920s and 30s, these designs were produced in small editions by companies such as Thonet; in the 1950s, Le Corbusier’s gallerist Heidi Weber put out an edition, and from 1963 onwards, Cassina produced the current edition in close collaboration with Le Corbusier.
