The chaise longue model LC4 was designed in 1928 by Le Corbusier with Pierre Jeanneret and Charlotte Perriand, and presented at the "Salon d'Automne" in Paris in 1929 as part of "L'Equipement intérieur d'une habitation". This chaise longue is certainly the most famous piece of furniture of the "Le Corbusier group". The shape of the swinging chair is shaped like the human body for a complete rest, that's why it was called by the authors: "La Machine à repos" (The Rest Machine).
