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.
