The LC2 armchair designed for the Villa Church Pavilion has also become the object of experimentation. Research has been particularly focused on colour, a study conducted in first person by Charlotte Perriand who was very sensitive and attentive to the influence of details and finishes in the relationship between user, space and decor. Each of the LC2’s cushions has two different shades and can be removed and freely rotated for a more versatile and interactive use allowing one to obtain a new and different armchair each time. Today Cassina offers a two-tone finish in satin and canvas rather than leather; using the palette designed by Charlotte Perriand, which includes colours such as brown, blue, and shades of grey and green, these become even brighter and more sophisticated with satin upholstery. The frame’s base is grey, almost blending into the sha dow cast by the armchair on the floor, whilst the rest of the structure is in blue , with an overall effect that enhances its light form. The LC2 Villa Church is an invitation to the public to establish a personal relationship with the armchair based on free interpretation, following the original intentions of the three authors.
