Indochine small swivel armchair by Charlotte Perriand - Cassina I Maestri Collection This version is an adaptation in wood of the small LC7 metal framed armchair which Charlotte Perriand designed in 1927, before she met Le Corbusier, and that was successively included in the range of furniture by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand presented at the Salon d'Automne in 1929. The small armchair, designed in Vietnam in 1943 for personal use, was created with craftsmanship techniques and materials that were available during the war. The first project had three legs but did not offer the right stability: following this observation Perriand adapted it with a four-legged version. Charlotte Perriand always adapted models using the materials and techniques that were available to her, just like the project programme and the place of production.
Indochine will be produced in solid walnut and stained black ash-wood and the padded backrest and seat will be upholstered in leather or fabric. The small armchair will be authenticated with the progressive production number, Charlotte Perriand's signature and the Cassina I Maestri Collection logo.
