Fauteuil à dossier basculant
This design aimed to develop an anonymous design for a piece of furniture an “object-type”, in this case referring to the typical safari chair which LC1 recalls with its shape, moveable arms, and backrest.
This lightweight and compact chair is a counterpoint to the Fauteuil grand comfort, more massive, and it is in perfect balance with the table in steel tube and the chaiselongue.
There are three versions of this chair which were all designed for different uses: the model that was shown at the Salon d’Automne in 1929, the version created for Villa Church in 1928, and another version created for the 1930 exhibition the Union des Artistes Modernes.
