Cassina LC7 Swivel Chair
The LC7 Swivel Chair (1928) evolved from one of a number of experiments, including an attempt to fashion a chair by wrapping inner tubes from tires around a steel frame. As the Le Corbusier group refined such trials, sensuous solutions took form. LC7 consists of a round, thickly padded seat fitted on top of a curving claw-like base of tubular steel that resolves in a swivel mechanism, giving the seat pad a buoyant look. It’s topped with a curved, amply padded barrel that doubles as backrest and armrest, linked by three tubular steel supports that fuse at the seat base. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina’s Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy.
