Description from Design Within Reach

Although best known for her elegant modernist tubular steel furniture of the 1920s and 1930s, Charlotte Perriand also experimented with materials and produced craft-based designs during the three decades spent collaborating with Le Corbusier Group. In 1940, while living and working in Japan, Perriand conceived of the Outdoor Tokyo Chaise, a reinterpretation of Le Corbusier’s LC4 Chaise Longue – but it was never produced. That is, until now. In 2012, more than 60 years later, Tokyo was put into production for the first time. Available in bamboo or teak, Tokyo is a fanciful combination of nature and the rational aesthetic of the International Style. Sitting atop a solid-wood base, its seat is composed of 12 curved wooden strips, which are connected to the curved bars below using satin brass studs. The seat pad and headrest are covered in water-draining, UV-resistant Sunbrella® fabric. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina’s Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy.

A protective, water-repellant cover is included.

Prices range from $7035.00 to $8445.00
