Le Corbusier born in 1887 was a Swiss architect, designer, urbanist, writer and painter. Le Corb is famous for being one of the pioneers of what now is called Modern architecture or the International style. He began experimenting with his line of Le Corbusier furniture design in 1928. His cousin, Pierre Jeanneret collaborated on many of the Corbusier Furniture designs. In 1928, Le Corbusier and Perriand began to put the expectations for furniture Le Corbusier into practice. The first results of the collaboration were chrome-plated tubular steel chairs designed for two of his projects, The Maison la Roche in Paris and a pavilion for Barbara and Henry Church.
The most famous of the Le Corbusier Furnitures were chairs and sofa sets that are the now-iconic Le Corbusier LC-2, LC-3 and LC-4. LC-2 & LC-3 are similar in design with the LC-2 being the small version and the LC-3 the larger version. Le Corbusier LC-4 is the famous Chaise Lounge.
