1950's Authentic Le Corbusier Marked STENDIG LC1 Basculant Chairs Thonet Cassina. Listed for sale is a pair of very special and original vintage LC1 Basculant Sling chairs.
They were designed most notably by Le Corbusier, along with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand. What makes this pair particularly special, is that both of them are marked with labels from STENDIG, the American importer for Le Corbusier's designs in the 1950's. During this time, the pieces were still produced by Thonet, who are consider the original and first authorized manufacturers.This pair is without doubt museum worthy. The markings in photos are faint, but its much easier to see the inscription of STENDIG in person. Do let me know if you'd like me to send other photos from other angles of these labels. This particular paid is found with the original frames and leather. The original arm straps are heavily worn, but will be included in the sale. I recently had the arm straps re-done in a robust natural leather, which will wear nicely like the seat and back, but can allow the original arm straps to be preserved. As the chairs are completely original, you can note that some of the chrome plating has flaked off on the bottommost part of one leg and exposed the brass underneath (a reflection of high quality manufacturing). There is significant wear to the leather as noted in photos, but they sit nicely and can most definitely still be used and enjoyed.
The original springs are still on the chair, with two or so missing in total. The price listed is for both chairs. And I will make sure that it is as inexpensive for you as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to send me a message. I will get back to you as quickly as I can.D ROSE MOD was founded in order to pursue a passion for modern design.
