Our high end model is made of world class cowhide leather and imported from abroad. Often discussed as a “sitting machine” and one of the signature classics of modern design, the Le Corbusier Basculant Armchair (1929) was an integral part Le Corbusier’s full burgeoning of the International Style. Introduced at the Salon d’Automne, the Le Corbusier Basculant Armchair’s emphasis lay in the juxtaposition of new construction techniques, mechanical versatility and precious materials. The beauty and grace of the chromed-steel frame lies in eight simple tubular pieces that are seamlessly welded together and given life by two unexpected arcs connecting the seat to the posterior frame. The visual effect is that of simultaneous weightlessness and solidity. The overall comfort of the chair is exceptional, with a reclining seat and mobile back for constant support. A natural cowhide seat and back with black leather sling arms lend warmth and stylish neutrality to an artfully constructed design of classic luxury. Haired hides are a natural product and no two will be alike. Each hide will have a varying pattern of brown, black and/or white spots. The Italian leather is made in Italy. The frame is also foreign made.

He was born in Switzerland, but became a French citizen in his 30s.
