Fans of design, quality furniture, and hardcore smut take note, a new book has surfaced that takes a look at Le Corbusier’s LC4 chaise longue — aka the porn industry’s biggest fuck prop.
We Don’t Embroider Cushions Here is a new 212-page project that catalogs the appearance of the recliner in pornographic movies. “Written” by artists Augustine and Josephine Rockebrune, the pair came up with the idea after stumbling upon a picture on the internet of two gay men having raunchy sex on an LC4. From there, they embarked on a research mission that involved watching lots of porn. Lots and lots and lots of porn.
“Put bluntly, in the industry it seems to be basically just a fuck prop. It plays the exact some role as a giant rubber butt plug, a sexy maid outfit, or anything else that can be used as a sex tool,” said the artists in an interview with It’s Nice That. From there, they went on to explore the chair’s backstory in further depth, with a particular focus on how Le Corbusier’s degrading view of women still haunts the “leather altar” to this day.
