An homage by Cassina to Charlotte Perriand for the occasion of the 2014 Louis Vuitton Icônes Collection.
Chaise longue with adjustable polished chrome plated steel frame. Base in basalt color. Headrest with polyester padding. The innovative self supporting mattress, covered in exclusive Louis Vuitton leather, is attached to the chrome frame by means of springs and has seamless edges with valuable and contrasting stitching.
Cassina shares its passion with Louis Vuitton for Charlotte Perriand and launches a limited edition (1000 pieces) of the LC4 chaiselongue designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand to honour this pioneering architect.
The inspiration of this innovative tribute piece dates back to the photo of Charlotte Perriand relaxing on one of the fi rst models of the chaise-longue with a self-supporting mattress attached directly to the frame.
The mattress – in natural, untreated Louis Vuitton saddle leather – has seamless edges with valuable and contrasting stitching.
Cassina is the only company authorized to produce the authentic Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand furniture collection . It is protected by an exclusive, worldwide rights license drawn up in 1964 when Le Corbusier was still alive and granted by the co-authors and the Le Corbusier Foundation.
Cassina has always been true to the spirit of the three masters, and the value of its products derive from the exceptional quality of the materials used and the skill of its artisans.
Added to the above, the ID card and the markings of the brand stamped on each piece make Cassina products unique and easily distinguishable from imitations.
