_Union des Artistes Modernes, 1930_ Armchair with structure in polished trivalent chrome plated (CR3) steel. The armrests are wider at the front and tapered towards the back. Seat, backrest and armrests come in self-supporting ecru fabric with natural leather trimmings. This version of the LC1 chair was presented in 1930 at the fi rst exhibition of the Union of Modern Artists, demonstrating how the furniture pieces presented the previous year at the Salon d’Automne could be made using a wider variety of upholsteries. In this case, the added detail was a refi ned leather rim made according to the fi nest saddlery technique, which inspired high fashion collections already in the 1930s.
