  • Cassina celebrates 50 years of the LC Collection, and goes green!

    The year 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of the Cassina LC Collection and the death of Le Corbusier, 1887 – 1965, the Swiss-French architect, designer and urban planner.

    In 1965, Cassina took over production of the licensed works of Le Corbusier and his collaborators, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. It continues to hold the exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation.

    Le Corbusier, Jeanneret and Perriand were particularly conscious of importance of the environment and nature was often a central theme in their works. Continuing its quest for innovation, Cassina has made a conscientious decision to use a trivalent chromium plating process for the frames of the LC Collection, a safe and considerably less toxic alternative to hexavalent chromium, due to lower chromium concentration levels, less nasty air emissions and consequently less toxic waste.

    The LC2 Petit Modele Armchair, designed in 1928, is available in many leather and fabric options. Call the GRShop web team for help with any questions regarding pricing and options.

    The LC Collection’s of leathers will also become totally organic and a new microfiber fabric, produced without solvent or metal based dyes, which uses 70% less water and generates 35% less CO2 in the production process, will be introduced, considerably reducing the negative impact on the environment.

    The LC6 Table, shown here with the LC8 Swivel Stool, was first presented to the public at the 1929 Salon d'Automne in Paris, along with other pieces of the LC Collection.

    Janell:  These lovely Mater Bowl Tables strike a perfect balance between contemporary-modern and rustic-industrial chic.  I specifically love the delicate strength and tapered shape of the steel legs and the fact that the bowls themselves are comprised of abundant, sustainably harvested mango tree wood. I hope I have been good - I know I have been if I receive one of these!

    The Mater Bowl Table series, designed by Ayush Kasliwal/ IND, is made of Sustainably harvested natural mango wood with steel legs and is available in 4 sizes and 3 stains: Natural, black and sirka grey.

    Lawrie:  The Herman Miller Noguchi Table for sure! Why? Because it is graceful, organic, sleek and I want one for my home, the walnut base, please! Noguchi felt this table, with its simple elements consisting of one piece of free form glass and two perfectly and delicately balanced pieces of wood, was one of his best achievements. Imitated? Yes. Equaled? Never. Is it art, or is it furniture?

    The Herman Miller Noguchi Table, designed in 1948 by Isamu Noguchi, is available in 4 finishes: black, walnut, natural cherry and white ash. Isamu Noguchi's signature appears on the edge of the glass top.
