LC4 CP: an homage by Cassina to Charlotte Perriand in the occasion of the 2014 Icon Collection by Louis Vuitton

A tribute edition LC4 CP ‘relaxing machine’ by Cassina and Louis Vuitton
A limited edition (1000 pieces) of the evocative LC4 chaise-longue designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand will be officially presented at Design Miami/Art Basel Miami Beach 2013 in memory of the 110th anniversary of Charlotte Perriand’s birth.
Considered as the ultimate ‘relaxing machine’ this object has always been special for Charlotte Perriand as it perfectly reflects her idea of functional furniture which caters to the natural human form to create maximum comfort. The inspiration for this LC4 version dates back to the then controversial - now renowned - photo of Charlotte Perriand relaxing on one of the first models of the chaise-longue with a self-supporting mattress attached directly to the frame.
