LC2 Armchair - Petit modèle
The series Grand Confort - in the two versions, petit and grand modèle - is part of the models in tubular steel, presented in 1929 at the Salon d’Automne in Paris, which were born from the collaboration between Le Corbusier, his cousin Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. In line with their concepts of proportion and ergonomics, they created the grand modèle for women, who tend to sit with their legs crossed in a diagonal line, and the petit modèle for men, who instead tend to sit straight with their legs open. The prototype was different from the current model: in 1959 when the production in series began in Zurich, the interior decorator Heidi Weber suggested the chrome-plating of the structure, giving the cushions a square, formal appearance, and eliminating the spring mechanism in the back legs, which made the chair to bend backwards. Without a doubt, these changes contributed to its commercial success. A sample of the petite modèle is on permanent exhibit at MoMA in New York. Polished chrome or lacquered tubular steel frame. Double-bedded, folded elastic strings base. Independent cushions padded with polyurethane foam; seat cushion with variable-density polyurethane and/or feathers. Removable leather or fabric upholstery.
