The LC3 Chair: Amazing In Every Way
The LC3 Chair by Le Corbusier is one of the most popular pieces in the world, not only in furniture design but in interior design and decor in general. Over time, it became a benchmark of mid-century modernism due to its resource management, space utilization, minimalist character, ergonomic aspects, and most especially for its innovative structure, featuring a premium grade 304 stainless tubular steel outer frame that “wraps” the dense cushions upholstered in high-quality Italian top grain leather with high stain protection and filled with high-density polyester foam.
The Le Corbusier 3 style chair is a model where even the materials and finishes combine to deliver a piece defined by elegance and strength, as it’s created for high durability. Its strong frame is prepared to resist even chipping, corrosion and rust -hence its tubes are as reflective as mirrors. Plus, the magic of this cool piece is in the details: its rounded corners are not cut at the time of manufacture but heat-bent, and at its bottom lies a nylon spring platform for comfortable support.
All these features, plus the fact that the chair looks amazing from any angle and feels great to use, have kept it on the sales and popularity charts for many decades as one of the most acclaimed designs in its genre.
