Description

Designed by Le Corbusier with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, the “chaise longue à réglage continu” – also known as B306 – was presented at the “Salone d’Automne” in Paris in 1929, as part of the “Equipement interieur d’une habitation”. Certainly, the most famous classic of the “Le Corbusier group”, it is constituted by two independent elements: the base and the cradle. The cradle – that follows the curves of the human body – appears to waver on its base, and it can slide without any mechanisms, with a continual gliding, that consequently allows any angles. It remains stable thanks to the friction of steel and rubber, covering the crosspieces of the base. Le Corbusier defined it as “the relaxing machine” and said that, for its design, he thought of a cowboy smoking his pipe, sitting with his feet up, on the edge of a fireplace. Matt black lacquered metal and steel base. Cradle with polished chrome frame, and springs through elastic straps. Mattress padded with foam and pony fabric upholstery. Headrest with feathers padding, and pony fabric upholstery.
