This Le Corbusier chaise longue was presented to the Salon d’Automne in Paris in 1929. Its chrome plated upper structure rests on a black iron base. The broken line of the lounging top is elegantly contrasted with the amply curved support . Le Corbusier’s inspiration for this chaise longue was the Kangaroo sofa that possessed unconventional curves to conform to a person at rest. The Kangaroo day bed was designed in 1830 here in the United States in the state of Virginia. The stability of the upper structure, at any angle of inclination is ensured by friction against the rubber covering the pedestal crosspieces. The LC4 Chaise Longue is included in the permanent design collection of The Museum of Modern Art.

Bart de Waard: #le_corbusier_lc4_chaise_lounge It is Chaise Longue, not Chaise Lounge.
It is French (long chair) and should not wrongfully be 'translated'. Dec 18, 10

    Anonymous: it is 'should not be wrongly translated', not 'should not wrongfully be translated'. It is English and should not be used wrongly.

    Anonymous: Lounge is the incorrect American transcription (not translation) of the word longue from French to American English - 'long chair' and not lounge chair. This partly comes about from an anglicised phonetic pronunciation of the word and a presumption that this sounds a lot like lounge so it must mean 'lounge'. It is also partly because logic says that these pieces of furniture are used in lounges.
