Chrome plated tubular steel frame with tiltable backrest. Covered with full grain  Italian leather. The traditional folding chair used by the british colonial officers has apparently inspired Le Corbusier to design this model. Very comfortable and a great design from the Master.


The Basculant Chair (1928) was inspired by a mid nineteenth century folding chair used by the British army officers on campaign in India.

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.

This is a high quality reproduction offered at substantial savings.

Materials:
Chrome plated tubular steel frame. Backrest, seat, and sling armrests are covered with pony skin.
Height : 64 cm
Depth : 63 cm
Width : 63 cm
