Le Corbusier

The LC1 Chair was created by a Swiss-born Architect and Designer; Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, popularly known by the pseudonym ‘Le Corbusier’. He was a highly influential architect, designer, painter, urban planner and writer, whose career spanned for almost 50 years. A pioneer of forward-thinking new age architecture, Le Corbusier sought to put a rational order to the chaos of the world through his designs. He rejected flamboyant architectural styles and developed his own style known as ‘brutalism’. By this, he created structures with basic geometric forms that were made of industrial things like as steel or reinforced concrete. Le Corbusier believed that pure, well- designed spaces could offer an idea on how we only need little to achieve happiness. Other popular designs from him are the Corbusier sofa and Corbusier lounge chair.
