Originally designed in 1928, the Le Corbusier 2-Seater Petit Confort Sofa remains one of the most recognized classics of modernist furniture design nearly eighty years later. Legendary architect and designer Le Corbusier first applied his revolutionary vision of a visible external frame to the LC2 and LC3 lines in order to embody the clean minimalism and industrial rationale of the International Style. If all that theory is crowding your cranium a little too much, we’ll boil it all down to the essential point - it just looked damn cool. And today, the scaled down elegance of the Petit Confort looks just as cool, whether as part of a ensemble or on it’s own in a smaller space.

The Full Story

For the actual manufacturing, Le Corbusier selected chrome-plated tubular steel – inexpensive and easy to obtain – so mass production would not be a problem. Originally, however, he didn’t necessarily see this type of sofa as being at home in someone’s home. To him, the piece’s unusual lines seemed ideal for a luxury cruise ship, which was a bit of a free-floating obsession with him. As a matter of fact, in 1933, Le Corbusier took some of the world’s leading architects on a voyage away from gathering political storms in Europe, where they produced the most influential statement on Modernism, the Athens Charter. Perhaps they were a bit too cut off from reality on this cruise - for when their theorizing was actually put to the test after World War II, it brought forth some of the worst features of that period’s town planning, where form overwhelmed function because of his insistence on universal design.

Whilst mass design wasn’t the best way to go for individual communities, it worked a charm for simple but amazing pieces like Le Petit Contort 2-seater sofa. Like all of Le Corbusier’s L2 and L3 lines, it hit the mainland with a bang, becoming one of the more enduring furniture icons of the 20th Century – and into our current millennium.
