Le Corbusier designed the original Grand Confort Lounge Chair (LC3) collection based on the human scale. A spirited advocate of Modernism, Le Corbusier created a range of Grand Confort Lounge Chairs (LC3) that expressed his ideals with great sophistication. These were first seen around 1929 as part of his "Equipment for the Home."
Sofas and loveseats came later, however. It was Mrs. Heidi Weber of Zurich who first put the Le Corbusier Grand Confort Lounge (LC3) collection into production in 1959. With his the approval, she changed the appearance of this chair and added this 3 seat sofa. 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 of the collection.
Though Le Corbusier is recognized as a leader in architectural modernism, he was also a writer, urban planner, industrial designer, and painter. In 1918, Le Corbusier was introduced to the cubist painter Amedee Ozenfant. Ozenfant encourage Le Corbusier to collaborate with him. Together they started a artistic movement commonly referred to as Purism. Le Corbusier paintings today are still much sought after in the marketplace. They can be regarded as equivalent in artistic style to other contemporaries such as Pablo Picasso. Le Corbusier focused almost all of his artistic energy into painting until 1922.
