Product Description: 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.
