Le Corbusier Glass Dinning Table ‘LC6’ For Cassina, 1970s Italy
The idea informing the LC6 table, which was launched at the 1929 Salon d’Automne in Paris, lies in the distinction between the support and what is supported, in other words, the base and the table top. The separation of the two parts is highlighted by the four intermediate structures. These both regulate the height and serve to maintain the due distance between the heavy base and delicate lines of the table-top. The base was designed in 1928, taking its cue from the oval profiles used in aeronautical design to maintain the distance between the wings of biplanes. This table features a steel base painted in black and textured glass top. The glass top has a small crack, which you can see, but you can't feel it. The table is originally signed. Beautiful Mid-Century Modern design peace.
