Le Corbusier, one of the world’s most important and influential architects and accomplished visual artist, has also created a vast oeuvre of interior and furniture designs. The chaise-longue LC4, the armchair LC2 or the sling chair LC1, which were done in cooperation with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, have become icons of 20th-century design. However, Le Corbusier’s contribution to modern interior design reaches far beyond these well-known classics.

The book Le Corbusier - Furniture and Interiors 1905–1965 is both, comprehensive monograph of Le Corbusier’s work in interior design and catalogue raisonné. The main essay is richly illustrated and arranged in four chronological parts: I) Charles-Edouard Jeanneret (1905–17); II) Le Corbusier & Pierre Jeanneret (1922–27); III) le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret & Charlotte Perriand (1927–37); IV) Le Corbusier (1938–65).
