LC1 UAM chair, 1930

LC1 UAM chair by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand for Cassina.

Following the launch of the LC1 chair in 1928, the design was reconfigured for presentation at the 1930 exhibition of the Union of Modern Artists. Resulting in the birth of the LC1 UAM. 

The chair demonstrated how furniture pieces presented the previous year at the Salon d’Automne could be made using a wider variety of upholsteries.
In this case, the added detail was a refined leather rim made according to the finest saddlery technique, which inspired high fashion collections already in the 1930s. Another subtle change was to the armrests. These became slightly wider at the front and tapered towards the back.
the LC1 UAM Armchair is lightweight and perfectly balanced. The taut backrest and seat offer optimal comfort. Also known as the Basculant Chair, the chair’s sculptural shape and comfortable armrests mean it is undoubtedly ahead of its time.
