Grande Sofa LC3 | by Le Corbusier
The Le Corbusier group called their LC collection the “cushion basket,” and designed it in 1928 as a modernist response to the traditional club chair. This variation on the theme was scaled for luxury cruise ships, the idea was to offer all the comfort of a padded surface while applying the elegant minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style. Thick, resilient pillows rest on top of the frame and provide the kind of sumptuousness rarely found even in the finest overstuffed conventional chairs.
