Starting in 1959, Heidi Weber fabricated the four iconic models designed by Le Corbusier, Pierre Jeanneret (1896–1967), and Charlotte Perriand (1903–1999): the Chaise longue basculante, the large and small models of the Fauteuil grand confort, and the Fauteuil à dossier basculant. In the course of realizing her “Maison d’homme,” she transferred the sublicense for the four models to the Italian furniture company Cassina S.p.A. in Meda. Their own contract expired in 1978. As a result, Cassina, in collaboration with Perriand and the Fondation Le Corbusier, was able to expand the collection considerably.
The four classics from the I Maestri collection are displayed in selected versions on the upper floor of the pavilion: a chaise longue from the series “Blonde d’Aquitaine” (2011) with short-haired hide, the two Fauteuils grand confort in their original color and with down padding, and the Fauteuil à dossier basculant in black-spotted cowhide.
