2 Fauteuil Grand Confort

A timeless style that has written its own chapter in design history, becoming an icon of global fame. Perfect today in any residential or contract setting.

Designed for ease of conversation, the armchair was exhibited in 1929 at the Salon d’Automne in Paris as the archetype of the modern concept in furnishings, interpreted by its authors as “household equipment”.

The separation between the metal structure and the cushions is consistent with the principles of Rationalism, just as the separation between the parts is based on an industrial approach to production, reminiscent of the architectural relationship between the loadbearing structure and the in-fill elements.

About Designer
Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand

In 1922, Le Corbusier began working in the new rue de Sèvres, Paris, atelier with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret with whom he shared research projects and design criteria in a profound and life-long professional relationship.

In October 1927, the pair decided to draw on the contribution of a young architect who had already begun to establish a reputation on the architectural scene of the time: Charlotte Perriand. 

Their collaboration lasted through to 1937 and was extremely fruitful, especially in the field of furniture design. The partnership was highly significant, both in terms of the cultural weight of their achievements and their professional successes.

It was together with Charlotte Perriand that the pair tackled the innovative project for “l’équipement d'intérieur de l’habitation”. 

The resulting designs were of great intellectual value and considerable commercial success. 

Thanks to Cassina’s ongoing production, there is continued interest in the conceptual contents of the work and the level of quality attained.

Due to these characteristics, each item in the collection is eagerly awaited.
