As unlikely as it may seem on the surface, Modernist design and pornography are frequent bedfellows. The famous LC4 chaise longue recliner appears in hundreds of adult movies (a friend told us!) as well as films like Chloe and 9 1/2 Weeks.

Designed in 1928, the LC4 Chaise Longue (or “long chair” in English) was dubbed the “relaxing machine” because of the way it mirrors the body’s natural curves while appearing to float above its supports. An infinite number of sitting angles are achievable with the LC4, as the moveable frame adjusts along the base, from upright to full recline.

The LC4 is included in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. Each piece is signed, numbered and, as a product of Cassina’s Masters Collection, manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy.

Cowhide and Leather upholstery come with black leather headrest.

Natural Canvas upholstery available with Tobacco, Dark Brown or Graphite leather headrest and footer.
