LC3 Chair Designer:
Le Corbusier Charles-ÉdouardJeanneret-Gris, who was better known as Le Corbusier; October 6, 1887 – August 27, 1965), was a Swiss-French architect, designer, painter, urban planner, writer, and one of the pioneers of what is now called modern architecture. He was born in Switzerland and became a French citizen in 1930. His career spanned five decades, with his buildings constructed throughout Europe, India, and America. Dedicated to providing better living conditions for the residents of crowded cities, Le Corbusier was influential in urban planning, and was a founding member of the Congrès international d’architecturemoderne (CIAM). Corbusier prepared the master plan for the planned city of Chandigarh in India, and contributed specific designs for several buildings there. Beginning with a commission to build a home at 18 years old, Le Corbusier enjoyed a decades-long career in multiple industries. In architecture, he became known for his adherence to the golden rule and his Five Points of Architecture, while his accomplishments in urban planning are truly admirable. His furniture was also popularized, inspiring hundreds of other modern pieces. His most well known pieces are his LC1, LC2 and LC3 chairs. Famously stating that “chairs are architecture” and that “sofas are bourgeois,” Le Corbusier upheld his design principles regardless of the genre he was working in. Lauded during his lifetime and after, even United States President Lyndon B. Johnson noted “his influence was universal and his works are invested with a permanent quality possessed by those of very few artists in our history.”
