LC2 Le Petit Confort Chair
LC2 Le Petit Confort Chair
“To be modern is not a fashion; it is a state.”
The Petit Confort was the smallest of the LC range, designed with the idea that men sit with their legs straight, while the roomier Grand Confort allows more space for women who cross their legs diagonally.
The LC2 is the narrower version of the broader, more rectangular LC3 Grand Confort.
The Confort range has made a number of notable television appearances. In 2010 the Grand Confort adorned the stage as Steve Jobs announced the very first iPad. The Grand Confort can also be seen as the Sherlock Holmes’ thinking chair in the modern BBC series.
The LC range of chairs is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art.
This range was fondly referred to as “cushion baskets” by its creators.

Occasionally remove dust from the leather with a damp, lint-free cloth. Small soiled spots can be gently removed with a colourless eraser. Liquid spills should be immediately dabbed dry and wiped off with a little water. Once a year, the leather should be treated with a special leather care product, but never with any type of strong cleansing agent. Only use quality leather products which do not leave residue. Oily build-up on the leather makes it susceptible to bacteria, which can destroy the leather. Clean the stitching with a soft-bristle brush.
Make sure that your leather furniture is not positioned close to heat sources, so that it does not dry out and become brittle. In addition, we recommend that leather surfaces are not permanently exposed to intense sunlight, because direct sunlight over an extended time period can diminish the quality of the leather.
Leather can be treated occasionally with conditioners to keep it in its original state. Liquid spills should be blotted up immediately, not wiped. For daily cleaning, dust leather with a soft cloth.
Do not use an abrasive material on the metal. Clean the item with a mild detergent and water. Dilute in the mild detergent in water so it is not too harsh on the metal. You can dip a soft-bristled toothbrush in the solution or a non-abrasive pad and use it to scrub off any residue or dirt on the item. Scrub the item with a soft toothbrush or a non-abrasive pad. Dry any residual moisture with a soft, dry cloth.
