Charlotte Perriand, Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret - Cassina - Sofa - LC3
Italië - 1960-1969 - Leder, Staal

LC3 represented a break from the conventional design of traditional sofas, thanks to the external (rather than internal) frame, which is a way to show the graceful and painstaking workmanship employed in the creation of the frame.
The separation between the frame cage and the upholstery elements is an accomplished expression of the logic of rationalism.

LC3 is a timeless model, which has made design history. Designed in 1928, it is the archetypal sofa in the new and modern conception of furniture as "domestic tools".

The lot at auction (as evidenced by an e-mail with Cassina) was purchased (probably by the BNL bank, whose label is on the sofa frame) in December 1995.

In really good condition. Structure and leather upholstery with very minor signs of wear. The padding is still perfectly solid. (The reflections of the light show creases on the back which are actually very slight to the naked eye). From these features it is clear that the sofa has been well maintained and used very little.

Dimensions: height 62 cm, width 172 cm, depth 72 cm.
