Le Corbusier designed the original Grand Confort Lounge Chair (LC3) collection based on the human scale. This large version of Grand Confort Lounge Chair (LC3) was conceived for women, who tend to sit with their legs crossed and in a transversal line.
Le Corbusier created a range of Grand Confort Lounge Chairs (LC3) that expressed his ideals with great sophistication. Mrs. Heidi Weber of Zurich first put the Le Corbusier Grand Confort Lounge (LC3) collection into production in 1959. With his approval, she changed the appearance of this chair. She removed the spring mechanism and used fabricating methods which allowed the frame to be chromed. She also gave the cushions a more formal, tailored look. Her contribution to the re-design of the collection was instrumental to the commercial success.
Le Corbusier’s early life was filled with travel throughout Europe. At the young age of 20, he was employed in Paris by Auguste Perret who was a pioneer in reinforced concrete architecture. It is clear that his tenure here would impact future designs. Just a year later, Le Corbusier moved to Vienna to study architecture with Josef Hoffmann. The influence of Hoffmann and a modern approach to design would also have a lasting impact.
