This little armchair is a reinterpretation of a wooden model used in India at the end of 1800s, the so-called “British officers chair” produced in England until 1956. The back can be placed at variable angles, guaranteeing a high level of comfort without any effort. It was designed in 1928 to furnish Villa Church in Ville d’Avray, and was exhibited for the first time in 1929 at the “Salone d’Automne des Artistes Décorateurs” in Paris. Of this chair, Le Corbusier contemplated the essential, elegant and austere form. Charlotte Perriand, his collaborator, said: “In furniture, metal has the same role as reinforced cement in architecture. It is revolutionary! in the chair, the compounding of metal and thick leather creates a series of magnificent combinations and unusual esthetic effects”.
