How Le Corbusier Sofa by Cassina is made – BrandmadeTV

His name was Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, but he was better known as Le Corbusier. An architect, painter, writer, and designer, Le Corbusier was one of the great pioneers of the modern movement in the early 20th century. During his long career, the Swiss-French Le Corbusier made several furniture designs, most well know among them is the Le Corbusier Sofa LC2 or No. 2. The LC2 Sofa is a two-seater sofa made of tubular steel and black leather first shown publicly at the Paris Salon d’ Automne (Autumn Salon) in 1929. Probably the feature that sets the Le Corbusier Sofa LC2 apart from the rest is its external frame. Rather than being on the sofa interior as found in conventional designs, the steel frame of the LC2 Sofa is placed on the outside and outlines the shape of the couch. Believe it or not, this was revolutionary in furniture design.
