Le Corbusier’s furniture and interiors

LC 14 01: A solid chestnut stool in natural wood colour with two dimensions and a squared side. Designed for the Cabanon, a place of intense design experimentation where, alongside numerous fixed pieces of furniture, mobile pieces are conceived as boxes. A simple seat that is also very refined, thanks to the dovetail joints which emphasise the links between each solid wood plane. The oblong hole on each side makes the Tabouret particularly easy to handle.
LC 14 02: The Tabouret in its three-dimensional version, designed by Le Corbusier in 1959 for the Maison du Brésil, a university residence in Paris. A stool of understated elegance created in solid, natural coloured oak. Along the two main sides, the oblong openings make it easy to move and the stool can be placed either horizontally or vertically. The exclusive dovetail joint system on the corners emphasises Cassina’s precision and skill in crafting solid wood.
