A light, compact chair designed and presented at the 1929 Salon d’Automne along with other important models, such as the LC2 Fauteuil Grand Confort, petit modèle and LC3 Fauteuil Grand Confort, grand modèle armchairs, the LC6 Table tube d’avion table and the LC4 Chaise longue à reglage continu.

As with all of Le Corbusier’s works, the LC1 Fauteuil à dossier basculant derives from an in-depth study of human posture. In this particular case, the chair is intended to be relaxing and to foster conversation.

Its perfect compositional simplicity, suited to any context, is available in three versions. In addition to the 1929 model, there is the 1928 Villa Church option and the one exhibited in 1930 at the Union des Artistes Modernes.
