LC10 - Bureau La Semaine à Paris - Pro

Design Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand

A MINIMALIST STRUCTURE

The Table dalle polie table by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, showcased at the Salon d’Automne in 1929, underwent a series of modifications for the office of the director of the French weekly publication: La Semaine à Paris.  

PRODUCTION YEAR

1930 

The editorial offices of the weekly Parisian magazine La Semaine à Paris were built as part of a collective project by a group of renowned figures from the Modern Movement, mainly from the Union des Artistes Modernes (UAM) founded in 1929. The Table dalle polie by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand, presented at the Salon d’Automne in 1929, was adapted for the administrator’s office. Charlotte Perriand added a metal box on the side to store files and enlarged the cantilevered sheet of glass, slightly hollowing part of it to hold pens and pencils. Cassina has reissued this desk, in collaboration with the Le Corbusier Foundation, Pernette Perriand-Barsac and the heirs of Pierre Jeanneret, with the utmost respect for authenticity, developing the project to meet the needs of the office today. The desk maintains its thick glass top, with a coloured structure underneath, and the characteristic integrated pencil holder like the original model. Inside the metal drawer unit, which supports part of the weight of the tabletop, there is a technical compartment that can provide integrated electrification and an easily accessible USB (A+C) socket on the side. Wiring is inserted through a low cable entry access and exits from the external side of the drawer unit.  

I MAESTRI 

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.

In re-editing this desk, Cassina worked closely with the Fondation Le Corbusier, Pernette Perriand-Barsac and the heirs of Pierre Jeanneret, maintaining the utmost respect for its authenticity, while evolving the design to meet the needs of today’s offices by inserting a power compartment in the metal file cabinet for integrated power access and a USB port. Cables are introduced through an underside cable slot and exit on the outside of the cabinet.
