LC12 - La Roche

BOLD CONTRAST

Designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in 1925 for the Maison La Roche in Paris, this design table with rectangular top in wood or glass is truly outstanding thanks to the bold contrast between its two main components: the support and what is supported.

This table, which was designed by Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret in 1925 for the Maison La Roche in Paris is characterised by the striking contrast between the support and what is supported. The pedestal, its width reduced to the minimum in relation to its height, meets the large horizontal plane and creates a stark contrast: a concept Le Corbusier explored elsewhere. The plastic and poetic merit of this piece derives from the reversal of roles: the table-top appears lighter than it really is, while the pedestal appears much stronger than it looks. The LC 12 table is part of the “I Maestri” collection; the table-tops are available in two sizes.

I Maestri

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.
