The creation of the armchair Grand Confort LC2 was possible thanks to a powerful, although a short union, between Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, that gave birth also to the Chair LC1 and the Chaise longue LC4

The welded frame in chromed steel includes a tubular frame united at feet, a slimmer inferior frame to keep the padded part, and a support structure made of interlacing straps on which are placed the backrest cushions upholstered in leather. Once all the pieces are placed on the structure, they create a perfect cubic form. 

This armchair made its first appearance at the Autumn Fair in Paris in 1929 and encountered a huge success among the public so that the Thonet company immediately placed it into the production line. This armchair had a series of variations, with and without rounded feet, in sofa-version and a more feminine declination with more considerable sitting (LC3) that allowed the sitting person to cross the legs, while still maintaining its cubic shape. 

From 1965 until today, the armchair LC2, along with sofa version on two and three sittings, is produced by the Italian company Cassina. Synonym of great design, comfortability, and versatility, it is still keeping a great interest among contemporary clientele.
