LC7 Chair by Charlotte Perriand for Cassina

Dezeen Showroom: Italian furniture brand Cassina has reissued the late French architect Charlotte Perriand‘s iconic 1927 swivel armchair, LC7.

Originally designed in 1927, Perriand created LC7 for her Paris apartment in the city’s Place Saint-Sulpice, a public square. Perriand was known for her commitment to designing products in the interest of functionality.

Cassina has reissued Perriand’s iconic chair for its Cassina PRO – I Maestri collection with a five-leg configuration made of tubular steel.
