The Basculant Chair (1928) was inspired by a mid nineteenth century folding chair
used by the British army officers on campaign in India.
We also have this chair manufactured in ITALY - Please request price and shipping.
Known simply as the 'Colonial Chair', the elegant simplicity of this predecessor has been carefully preserved. Indeed the lines of the 'Colonial's' tilted seat and canted back, are strikingly similar to those of the Basculant Chair. Le Corbusier had the foresight to see the true beauty in this humble design, elevating it from rugged utilitarian basic, to functional art.
In this modern derivation, a chromed steel frame replaces the oak of the original, and leather seat and back replace light canvas. A variation uses cow hide, (called
pony) instead of the leather; serving perhaps as an enigmatic reminder of the
outdoorsy colonial lineage of this eminently refined heir.
Materials: Chrome plated tubular steel frame. Backrest, seat and sling arm rests are covered with full-grain leather or pony.\
