The original name for this wide lounge chair designed by Le Corbusier was “Grand Confort Grand Modèle”. LC3 is Cassina’s trademark-protected model name.
Prototypes for this model, along with other Le Corbusier furniture designs, were exhibited at the Paris Autumn Salon in 1929. In the 90 years to follow, this lounge chair was manufactured by many different companies. Our version is not just some crude copy of the Cassina armchair – it is borne of almost 50 years of tradition.
There is nothing more embarrassing than a poor copy!
Our reproduction of the Corbusier Grand Confort Armchair means that you will get a piece of furniture that not only looks like the design it was based on, but also feels like the real deal.
Original bend radius
Copying a Le Corbusier design is no easy feat. To achieve the harmonious curves of the frame, the tubular steel first has to be gently bent, and then it has to be mitre welded.
Even nowadays, this is expensive, precision work, and cheap copies are easy to spot because their frames are less rounded, their edges sharper.
Welded seams polished to perfection
A lot of effort goes into making a good product! To manufacture the clean, almost invisible welded seams, welding must be done with a high degree of precision.
Once the seams have been welded, a lot of time is spent sanding the welded seams and then polishing them to a high gloss finish. Not until this is done to our satisfaction is the chromium plating process started.
The elegance of chrome
This is what the finished frame of our Corbusier chair looks like. A solid frame made of L profile steel is screwed to the tubular steel at four different points.
For long-lasting shine, we undergo a three-step chromium plating process using 30 micron chrome.
A stretchy underlay made of nylon straps is used to support the cushions.
Environmentally-friendly anilin leather
We only use “Lord” leather from the renowned Italian tannery DANI. In addition to its sumptuous, silky-smooth surface, it is produced in an climate-friendly manner and is free of harmful chemicals. Find out more
Because you deserve to know what you are bringing into your home.
We sit on our ideas – especially when it comes to upholstery
The cushion is filled with foam of different degrees of hardness and it slopes slightly to the back.
This keeps you from sliding forward, something that is common in cheap reproductions. That single block of foam that they use costs only a fraction of what we use to upholster our cushions.
The appeal of Corbusier chairs lies in the contrast between the austere, angular lines and the softness of the upholstery.
To achieve this, we use a combination of foams of different densities and upholstery batting.
This image shows two layers of foam and several layers of batting and Dacron.
Right-angled shapes are not ergonomic. But because we put hours into designing the ultimate upholstery, this sofa will mold itself to your body. As a matter of fact, you’ll be surprised at how comfortable it is.
See the difference. Feel the difference. You’ll know a good copy from a cheap one as soon as you sit down!
