The LC8 stool takes its inspiration from the swivel chair designed in 1927 by Charlotte Perriand for her own apartment in the Place SaintSulpice in Paris, and was shown at the 1929 Salon d’Automne, as part of a collection co-designed with Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret. Its iconic and versatile shape derives from the need to rationalise serial production by using common elements. The trivalent chrome-plated steel frame, available both in a polished or painted finish, features polyester padding and expanded CFC-free polyurethane foam, and is upholstered in leather or fabric. Also available as an outdoor version with a frame in stainless steel finished in powder paints designed for outdoor use in a range of fi ve textured colours, the stool has been awarded Catas certification thanks to the updates to the structure made by Cassina in 2016.
