The idea informing the LC6 table, which was launched at the 1929 Salon d’Automne in Paris, lies in the distinction between the support and what is supported, in other words, the base and the table top. The separation of the two parts is highlighted by the four intermediate structures. These both regulate the height and serve to maintain the due distance between the heavy base and delicate lines of the tabletop. The base was designed in 1928, taking its cue from the oval profiles used in aeronautical design to maintain the distance between the wings of biplanes. The current model is also available as an outdoor version, with a frame in stainless steel finished in powder paints designed for outdoor use and available in five textured colours.
