True genius, Charlotte Perriand ((1903-1999) was 23 years when se designed the chaise longue for which she would become famous and established herself as a prominent collaborator alongside one of the most notoriously demanding architects of the age: Le Corbusier. The French designer Charlotte Perriand was born in Paris in 1903 and attended the École de l'Union centrale des Arts décoratifs from 1920 to 1925. After meeting Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand worked with him and Pierre Jeanneret until 1937. Charlotte Perriand had a paramount share in designing much of the furniture the collective produced during those years. The revolutionary tubular steel furnishings and system furniture designed by the three were presented as "Équipement de l'habitation" (home equipment) at the 1929 "Salon d'Automne", where they were widely acclaimed. These functional pieces include the "Basculant B301", an armchair with a chromium-plated tubular steel frame and a seat and back convered in calf hide. Other hits were the "Chaise longue B306" (later the "LC4" chaise longue) and the model "B302", an armchair featuring a round upholstered seat and a round upholstered back. In 1928 the three designed "Grand Confort B302" (later "LC3"), a comfortable armchair with thick upholstery.
