Chair designed by Charlotte Perriand in 1927. Relaunched in 1978, manufactured by Cassina in Italy.

Designed by Charlotte Perriand and part of the LC collection by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand.

An icon with a versatile and functional soul, the LC7 was designed in 1927 by Charlotte Perriand for her own apartment in the Place Saint-Sulpice in Paris. First exhibited at the 1928 Salon des Artistes Décorateurs, it was also shown at the Salon d’Automne one year later, where it formed part of a collection that Charlotte Perriand co-created with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. Upholstered in leather or fabric, this swivel chair, available in a four- or five-leg configuration, features expanded polyurethane and padded polyester filling for back and seat. The outdoor version is in stainless steel, in this case with polyester upholstery that replicates the looks of the indoor version. In 2016, the structure of the LC7 was updated and this led to its obtaining Italian CATAS certification.

About the designer:
Charlotte Perriand (1903-1999) she was born in Paris in 1903 and attended the E´cole de l’Union centrale des Arts décoratifs from 1920-1925. Charlotte Perriand designed furniture made of anodized aluminum and chromium-plated steel, showing it at the 1927 “Salon d’Automne” in Paris.
After meeting Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand worked with him and Pierre Jeanneret until 1937. The revolutionary tubular steel furnishings and system furniture designed by the three were presented as “Équipement de l’habitation” (home equipment) at the 1929 “Salon d’Automne,” where they were widely acclaimed.
In 1930 the Union Des Artistes Modernes (UAM) was founded in Paris, a group that viewed itself as a countermovement challenging such establishment organizations as the “Salon d’Automne” and also advocated Art Deco and Modernism. From 1931 Charlotte Perriand showed her own work solo there. In 1937 Charlotte Perriand and Pierre Jeanneret collaborated on designing a mountain chalet of sheet aluminum, which they showed at the “Exposition Internationale des Arts et Techniques dans la Vie Moderne” and later they came up with plans for prefab houses made of aluminum.
In 1940 Charlotte Perriand became a design consultant to the Japanese Board of Trade. She lived in Japan until 1946 and from then on Charlotte Perriand’s designs reveal overtones of the Japanese feeling for form, as shown by the 1953 chair “Synthe’se des Arts.”
