The LC2 Chair Is Created To Represent The Best Features Of Modernism & Minimalism

Modernism and minimalism are two styles that have very similar characteristics. Believe it or not, both are created under very similar principles which normally make them converge to the same point and their influences result in the creation of pieces such as the one we will talk about today: the Le Corbusier chair.

The Le Corbusier chair is a piece created by -as its name shows- Le Corbusier. He was a very famous designer within the modernist movement and was one of the first collaborators of the principles of this style. He not only helped with the optimal structure of buildings and urbanizations, but he was also involved with the optimal structures of furniture pieces, including chairs. 

To be modern is not a fashion, it is a state. It is necessary to understand history, and he who understands history knows how to find continuity between that which was, that which is, and that which will be.

Le Corbusier.

This chair represents the simplicity and functionality that both styles always seek. It is upholstered in aniline leather to make it elegant and durable. Its legs are made of stainless steel and it is filled with high-density foam. All these materials and characteristics make it a perfect piece to be included in both styles.

Hans Wegner’s Chairs: The CH29 Sawbuck Chair

Continuing the series of chairs designed by Hans Wegner, the Danish master creator of furniture and outstanding pieces like the Hans Wegner Shell Chair, let’s take now a look to the  CH29 Sawbuck Chair, one of the 300 spectacular chairs designed by this skillful artist.

The CH29 Sawbuck Chair is named this way due to its characteristic back support, with a design very similar to a woodcutter’s sawbuck and is closely associated with Wegner’s CH28 easy chair. They both work very well as dining chairs.

As a curious fact, the CH29 Sawbuck Chair is not manufactured right now by the Hansen house, the traditional manufacturer of almost all creations of Hans Wegner. As most of the Wegner Chairs, they are made of solid beech or oak in a variety of wood finish options.

Hans Wegner Chairs: The Wing Chair

We are making a brief account of the work of Hans Wegner, creator of the Shell Chair, the Wishbone Chair, among other pieces. Now is the turn of the Wing Chair, one different approach of Wegner to the field of comfort.

The Wing chair is somehow something different compared to other popular works by the Danish master. From materials to shape. The Wing Chair (CH445) is a comfort chair. With a stainless steel frame and upholstered body, the Wing Chair is a solid, stunning piece for a lounge room.

With a high fully upholstered back seat, the Wing Chair has a very solid comfortable body with enough density to support all parts of the body. Its stainless steel frame is slender and rounded. Each leg has a shoe attached to prevent any sliding. Four small steel coned elements connect the upper part of the chair with the frame. 

The Wing Chair was released originally in 1960, but with a limited number of production. In 2006 it was re released with outstanding success, as it is today. It has a foot stool to complement the comfort experience.

The Arco Lamp: a Perfect Ally To Work From Home

Multifunctional spaces have become an impressive trend, especially in the last year, a period during which quarantine, isolation, and work-from-home modalities forced many people to transform their environment and adapt it to the new lifestyle that before it seemed distant or very alien.

In that sense, having tools at home that symbolize the perfect combination of style and functionality such as the Arco lamp is an undoubted advantage, both for environments designed according to an open-concept floor plan and more traditional indoors.

We are not even referring to the original product as there are alternatives like the Arco lamp replica by Manhattan Home Design that work and look just as good as the authentic piece from the Castiglioni brothers.

This design was recognized from its inception for several technical advantages. It was practically the only floor lamp that could offer steerable overhead light as if it were a ceiling lamp, with a robust and attractive marble base that provides stability.

The base can be up to two meters away from the reflector head so that the user can move freely around the light source without tripping over it. This makes it an ideal device for work environments such as workshops, offices, reading rooms, etc.

Yet an Arco lamp reproduction is so impressive in a visual sense that its very presence, defined by the height of its stainless steel arch of up to 95 inches high, is something simply to behold. This piece was made to achieve the perfect balance between aesthetics and function.

Minimalist environments have captured the attention of a large public in recent years. This is mostly because the main decorating styles nowadays look very good with minimalist environments, compartments in which “less is more”, almost always compartments of reduced dimensions.
