LC3 Outdoor Divano
Armchair and two seater sofa, for the first time presented with one-piece cushion. The structure is made entirely from polished AISI 304 stainless steel. Many details have been revised to ensure maximum durability and reliability in all weather conditions. These include the use of high class materials, the silver welding, the black PVC foot ends, and the stretched polyester yarn net at the base. The cushion has been developed to withstand all weather conditions.
The cushion insert in water-draining polyurethane allows water to drain through, preventing stagnation mould and unpleasant odors. The padding is ECOFILL, a hollow fibre that is totally natural, organic, hypoallergenic and hydrophilic.
It dries quickly when exposed to the elements due to its lightness and high air content (about 80%). ECOFILL is soft to the touch and very comfortable. It is also totally biodegradable. There are two types of fabric available for the outdoor line-up: Outdoor Sunbrella Canvas, a high tenacity polyester yarn coated in PVC, and Outdoor Sunbrella Sling stain-resistant acrylic yarn treated with an exclusive formulation, called Glen Raven. Both types are totally mould resistant, ISO 9001 certified, and available in 5 colors.
|Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret, Charlotte Perriand
In 1922, Le Corbusier began working in the new rue de Sèvres, Paris, atelier with his cousin Pierre Jeanneret with whom he shared research projects and design criteria in a profound and life-long professional relationship.
In October 1927, the pair decided to draw on the contribution of a young architect who had already begun to establish a reputation on the architectural scene of the time: Charlotte Perriand.
Their collaboration lasted through to 1937 and was extremely fruitful, especially in the field of furniture design. The partnership was highly significant, both in terms of the cultural weight of their achievements and their professional successes.
It was together with Charlotte Perriand that the pair tackled the innovative project for “l’équipement d'intérieur de l’habitation”.
The resulting designs were of great intellectual value and considerable commercial success.
Thanks to Cassina’s ongoing production, there is continued interest in the conceptual contents of the work and the level of quality attained.
Due to these characteristics, each item in the collection is eagerly awaited.
