Based upon the collaboration between Cassina and the Fondation Le Corbusier, the LC Collection was set up by the company in 1960 and ranges from the reissue of the masterpieces by Le Corbusier to the reconstruction of the pieces he created with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, who contributed to the "Equipment intereur d'une habitation" exhibition at the Salon d'Automne in 1929. This event was a crucial turning point in the conception of the domestic landscape, in the organization of environments and in the free fruition of elements, by introducing absolute, free-standing units such as the Casiers Standard modular and stackable containing structures. The study of the relationship between man and space, and the solutions aimed at enhancing this coexistence by balancing gestures and movements within a complete furniture system, pervades an unmatched production which lives again in the re-editions crafted by Cassina with absolute respect for the designers’ aims and for the authenticity of the original icons. The balance between shape and function presides these simple and essential forms, accurately calculated upon the archetypal dimensions of the human body and upon a sense of beauty and rationality that is strikingly versatile and modern.
