Avray in a prototype version. As with the other models of Le Corbusier, the Chaise Longue was first presented to the public at the Salon d'Automne des Artistes Decorateurs in Paris in 1929. It is reminiscent of the famous chaise of Thonet, the bentwood being translated into tubular steel. In the archives of L'Esprit Nouveau there is a folder advertising an adjustable lounge chair, "Le Surrepos" designed by Dr. Pascuad which certainly directly inspired Le Corbusier. The Chaise Longue of Le Corbusier was first put into production by Thonet France who, in all probability, constructed the first prototype. In the early 1930's it was produced, under Thonet license, by the Swiss company, Embru. The Chaise Longue in its present form was reintroduced in 1959 by Heidi Weber of Zurich who worked on the re-edition directly with Le Corbusier. Mrs. Weber modified the base substituting the elliptical tube with an oval tube which was easier to obtain and work with.
