Outdoor LC8 Swivel Stool
The LC8 Swivel Stool (1928) represents the designers interest in exploring the structural possibilities of tubular steel and was designed to mirror the LC7 Swivel Chair. The LC Series was originally designed for indoor use, but after a visit to Villa Savoye, where some of the pieces were being used on the outdoor terrace, Cassina was inspired to create outdoor-safe models. The manufacturer spent three years working closely with the LC Foundation to develop a product that was within the foundations parameters: To be the same or better quality than indoor. Cassina opted for better, using hand-polished AISI 304 stainless-steel with silver welding, as opposed to chrome, to construct the frames a material with extreme resistance to corrosion that is actually more authentic to the product; chrome was not used until the 1970s/80s. The silver welding will patina over time and develop a halo. Sunbrella fabric covers the UV-resistant (and waterproof) seat cushion, which is wrapped in Ecofill a hypoallergenic fiber that dries quickly. Each piece is signed and numbered and, as a product of Cassina’s Masters Collection, is manufactured by Cassina under exclusive worldwide license from the Le Corbusier Foundation. Made in Italy. A protective, water-repellant cover is included.
