209 - The Favorite Chair of Architects
Le Corbusier used the chair in many of his buildings: in the Pavillon de l'Esprit Nouveau in Paris, the Villa de la Rocca and in houses nos. 13 and 14/15 in the Stuttgart Weissenhof Estate.
The semi-detached house of Le Corbusier in Ratehnaustrasse 1-3 has been home to the Weissenhof Museum since 2006. Here, the rooms were restored to their original state and furnished with chair 209.
"...this chair, millions of which are used in Europe and in both North and South America, possesses nobility." Le Corbusier
